you can subscribe to a ddos "scrubbing service" which reroutes your inbound 
traffic through a ddos filtering vendor (such as akamai) during attacks. they 
will deliver the non-ddos subset of the traffic to your servers in your own 
data center using a tunnel. so, technically, there is a way to mitigate a 
reflector attack without migrading your servers to a professional IDC.
