auto-backup across the net

Here's the situation. I'm building a mission-critical web-based
database. It's hosted on a server at, say,
If that server goes down, even for an hour, I want to be able to
immediately tell my clients to switch to another server (at another
location) at, say, http://www.servertwo.foo/bigdata.cgi.
In order to accomplish this kind of seamless transition, I need to
ensure that data is backed up across the net in more-or-less real time
- perhaps, every 5 minutes we ship changes to the data across the net.
Is there an obvious solution or technology that I should be thinking
of? I'm almost exclusively a Perl guy, so solutions with Perl are a
good thing, but I'm open to other thoughts...
