Multi-Region High Availability
Right now I am setup in the NYC1 region. I am looking at how to mitigate some of the issues we have been experiencing in this region over the past month.
What options are there to host a load balanced web server(s) in two regions (NYC and SFO for example)? Do we have to use an external LB for this?
What option do we have to have a master-master type clustered database in two different regions?
What are others doing on DO to have high availability? I do not care as much about load balancing our services between two data centers, what we do want is ideally automatic failover from primary region to a backup/secondary region. So if we are experiencing issues with the NYC1 region we could manually or automatically failover to serving out of the SFO region.
