Website hosted in two datacenter RRS feed

  • Question

  • User-1305149166 posted

    I have a website hosted in two datacenter.

    What I want is: If one datacenter is down for whatever reason (Power outage, for example), the user accessing the website can access another datacenter automatically.

    Is there anyway to set this up?

    Hello,

    No, because you should set the DNS records. The other option is some script to check for the server uptime and if the server is down for some time to change the DNS records, but it will take some time (24-48h) before the DNS servers resolve the new datacener.

    Regards

    hi cklein,

    This is possible if you have setup DNS Mirroring Service on your DNS server.
