Making sure droplets are on different physical servers or server racks
I would like to use multiple droplets that will host the same service to achieve high availability. If one droplet fails, another will take over. I still want to have a fast, low-latency connection between the droplets, so they all are going to be in the same datacenter.
How do I ensure that two droplets do not run on the same physical machine? How can I tell if two droplets share the same server rack?
I need to spread out my droplets to different physical servers mounted on different racks to ensure availability in case of a hardware failure or an issue with a whole rack.
