VRRP to manage a floating Public IP


#1

Hello,
I’d like to manage a floating Public IP between two servers.
I’m used to do it with keepalived, and the vrrp protocol.
Is it possible to do it on Scaleway instance?
If not, what is your workaround?
Thank you

Hello,

It is possible to remap the IP address of an instance to another one via an API call:
https://developer.scaleway.com/#ips-ip-put

You may create a script that is run by keepalived in case one of your instances becomes unavailable to update the destination of the ip to the other instance.

We will soon also provide a managed Load Balancer service. The service is currently in private beta and you can request access to it if you want to try it.
