Keep Your Network Secure: Implement A Failover Mechanism
Heficed’s floating IPs are static IP addresses accessible via our platform that you can assign to servers and instantly remap between other servers in the same datacenter. It is possible to implement a failover mechanism with floating IPs to build a high availability infrastructure.
Heficed’s fully-managed load balancers provide a highly accessible network load balancing facility, negating the requirement for just one server having to deliver an organization’s online presence solely by itself. Instead, our load balancers distribute network traffic to a collection of servers.
Another solution we provide is a more bespoke load balancing resolution. We utilize high availability proxies and floating IPs from Heficed’s IP Address Market platform.
Avoiding single points of failure within server infrastructures by using floating IPs is possible, as already stated, but these alone do not add up to an automatic high availability solution.
The mechanism for immediate detection of server failure must also be in place to automate the reassignment of the floating IP to a standby server. That’s why our clients can rely on the automation we have created within our platforms to recognize a failure of the live server and instantly reassign to a backup device.
Floating IPs are static IP addresses that can be automatically allocated and then reallocated within an RIR. Reassignment of these floating IPs can be via Heficed’s control panel or our API. If a failure occurs, utilizing a floating IP to reroute network traffic to an alternative load-balancer is an effective and rapid defense to system downtime.
Floating IPs are available in all of our datacenters. Still, we should point out that being region-specific will only let you redirect network traffic between any of your servers within the same datacenter.
It is important to remember that designating a floating IP to a particular server doesn’t change or replace its primary initial public IP address. Utilizing a floating IP must be pre-empted with the server having a primary IP address allocated.
