Follow-up August London/Frankfurt outage questions

I appreciate the detailed postmortem about the August 1-2 London/Frankfurt outages but I have further questions.

Why does a network outage in London also cause a network outage in Frankfurt?

Is Linode making changes to reduce the risk, impact or duration of such outages?

Do other data centers have the same circumstances?

How should a customer design an HA setup using multiple data centers?
