I don't really have any advice, just an interesting anecdote. About a year ago, I was in a discussion with a software vendor we use and some of YouTube's tech people about how they handle volume (the vendor's website - critical to our use of their software - was being hit with DoS attacks on a weekly basis). Basically, YouTube's "normal" daily traffic volume is greater than most documented DoS attacks. If someone tried to attack them, they literally wouldn't know it based on bandwidth usage.
