Two servers on different hardware at same location?

February 12, 2015 1k views

Hi,

Does anyone know if its possible to get two servers on two different bits of "tin" at the same location?

I only ask as I'm thinking of throwing a few frontend servers together running memcache to share sessions and round robin dns for load balancing(ish)..

It would be handy to have at least one of these on different "tin" just so if one of your servers/enclosures go pop, it wont take em all out at once?

Thanks.

  • If you launch multiple droplets in the same region the odds that they will land on the same physical hypervisor is actually quite low. We do provide an API endpoint that will allow you to check if your droplet shares physical hardware with any of your other droplets which can be found here.

  • OK cool, I figured that there must be tonnes of servers based on the number of droplets that must be created daily.

    I guess I can use the API to verify then. Thanks for the info!
