Failover setup


We have designed a PHP/MYSQL based software and we need to make sure that the app is online all the time.

What setup should we choose?

Nodebalancer or IP failover?

Any guidance will be helpful.

NodeBalancer will do IP failover automatically for you. It's not an either/or question.

If we are not using nodebalancer, what are the other options?

IP swap?

IP failover?
