As the Internet has grown, and as systems and networked services
within enterprises have become more pervasive, many services with
high availability requirements have emerged.  These requirements have
increased the demands on the reliability of the infrastructure on
which those services rely.

Various techniques have been employed to increase the availability of
services deployed on the Internet.  This document presents commentary
and recommendations for distribution of services using anycast.  This 
document specifies an Internet Best Current Practices for the
Internet Community, and requests discussion and suggestions for
improvements.
