Can I use NodeBalancers across data centers?

Linode Staff

I want to have high availability across several data centers. Can I use your NodeBalancer across DCs?

To answer your question about our NodeBalancers. You cannot use our NodeBalancer across data centers since they use private IPs to communicate.

If you want to have a setup for high availability across data centers. I recommend setting up a high availability proxy using public IPs.

You can find more information at the HAproxy man page.
