    Yeah, was just going to suggest this. And then failover to different providers, not to the same provider.

    It's a part of stallion 2.

    It requires a lot of changes to support the billing side of it all as well which is what is going to take up most of the work. The IP locks and all that are already developed for KVM so I'd just have to generalize it to support OpenVZ.

  • It wont work for us, we have a lot of vlans, most only for a node. ARP storms can take down the whole network and that is something we cannot afford at all due to other sensitive services near-by. Better waste a few IPs here and there than risk something like that.

  • You are looking for a provider with multiple locations and anycast ip adresses so that if one location is offline, the other anycast locations will respond to the same ip. I do not think you are gonna find many LEB companies providing anycast ips in multi-locations. I would look for a company that offer this, but it will likely be in the HEB range instead.

    If you are talking about in the same DC, like one server crashed and you want to bring it up on another, this might be slightly more doable. However, once again, you need to find someone willing to do that, because like mentioned above it can cause arp storms if you are not careful.

    Cheers!
