HA using linode

Avatar forum:delphi 4 months, 1 week ago

Is there any service that can guarantee high availability in linode ?

does the load balancer has HA and can I use it's IP for the outgoing traffic (because some of the external party expect me to register the IP to be put in whitelist in their firewall)

You can certainly use a NodeBalancer as part of a high availability setup. We have an introduction to high availability here:

However, a NodeBalancer wouldn't work if you need to have the same IP address for outbound traffic, since each back-end Linode would use it's own IP address. To have high availability, but use the same IP address for inbound and outbound, I'd recommend using IP failover:
