This guide will walk you through configuring a setup that will watch your droplets and if one becomes unreachable it will failover connections to the other. It should fit your requirements.

Keepalived is a service that can monitor servers or processes in order to implement high availability on your infrastructure. In this guide, we will use the `keepalived` daemon to monitor two web servers. The secondary server will take over the web traffic if the primary server experiences issues by automatically claiming ownership of a shared Floating IP address using the DigitalOcean API.
