As you correctly point out in your question, a hack or electromagnetic impact on a diode will typically only cause harm on one side of the diode, the optical gap and galvanic separation will typically protect the other proxy server. We do offer a high-availability option that can switch to a hot standby system in the event of a proxy server failure. Some customers also keep a pre-configured standby system on-hand that they can quickly drop-in after a failure.
How do we ensure protection and recovery from a hack, intended damage or solar flare that fries the electronics on an outside server?
