Pi-Hole HA

At work I'm constantly dealing with servers that aren't redundant and so need buy-in and advance notice whenever we need to bring them down for maintenance. I started thinking about this for the home front after I installed my first Raspberry Pi running Pi-Hole. If you aren't aware, Pi-Hole acts as a middle man for IP address requests to locations on the world-wide-web.
