Loadbalancing between two Server

Unanswered Question
May 18th, 2011

Hi we have two servers which are hosted at two different location and we want to load balance the traffic for these two server in Active/ standby mode

details are as below

1)    Server-A IP address is 10.10.2.50/24 and Server-B would be 20.20.20.50/24

2)    Server-A hosted at Location-A datacenter & Server-B hosted at location-B datacenter.

3)    If end  users hit on the IP 10.10.2.20 or URL based on this IP  then  traffic get rerouted to Server-A.

4)    In case  of failover traffic gets rerouted to DR site where Server-B is hosted.

Is it possible to do on router level ?

Thanks in advance.

In case of failover? What does this mean to you? How are those locations connected? What router models you use?

Hi Florin,

Failover : I mean in case server-A goes down then whenever users hits on virtual ip traffic should automatically redirects to Server-B.

And these location are connected by WAN and on Cisco 4503

Please find attached the network diagram.

One option hitting in my mind could be:-

you should use same IP for both servers, if one goes down then u can re-route the traffic, it can be easily managed via any dynamic protocol or static floating route.
