i don't think there is any real solution to a DDOS attack. It is a
problem for both carbon-based life and cyberspace alike.

I haven't been able to find any information regarding how to survive a sustained

 a lot of information on what DDoS is, how not to be an amplifier, etc, but
 not much on best practice router/switch configs, hardware/solutions to stay alive
 during a DDoS attack, etc.

 If you are an ISP, other than calling your upstream provider to null route the
 target IP, what other options are available?
