comment If DNS Failover is not recommended, what is?
Just when I'm getting excited to other methods like anycast I get this. LOL. I guess the big question is, will DNS failover work 100% in the future? Are all browser manufacturers required to follow this failover mechanism or is it optional? One of the biggest argument is we can't expect clients to behave as we expect it. But if every browser manufacturer is going to fix this then this is definitely cost effective than anycast implementation.

Does this mean I need to have the same IP in datacenter 1 and datacenter 2? If yes, how do you actually do that?

comment Are self Self-healing Cloud and Traditional Failover Boxes basically the same?
It should be standard practice I agree. But by default meaning when I purchase cloud hosting, it is by design that it will reboot to the next machine if the current has become problematic. Now if I purchase a VPS box, it's just that, one box, it doesn't come with load-balancing or failover, since those are optional setup. So in other words VPS w/ load balancing and failover isn't sold as standard in the market.

You are right. I confirmed with a cloud provider that there is around 5 mins downtime to boot to another available machine so it isn't instantaneous as it was perceived. I guess the only credit it deserves is at least it is done by default while true instantaneous failover requires custom setups.

From what I understand in what your saying, in terms of high availability, traditional HAproxy failover is faster than cloud rebooting to another machine? And in terms of scaling new hardware, cloud still requires some downtime whereas in traditional failover you can setup additional load-balanced boxes without any downtime?
