Easiest failover for docker container ?

LisoLiso Member

Say, I have two identical container in two different server-- server A and server B. The main apps would be at server A and server B act as backup server.

I want if for whatever reason container on server A is down, incoming user is redirected to container on server B.

I have taken a look at container orchestration such as docker swarm, k8s, rancher etc. I want to ask if any of you have this requirement and what program you utilized to fulfill this fail-over strategy ?

    I would still just use docker swarm for this, by far the easiest.

    +1 for swarm, I never recall that being difficult

    Any implementation of k8s (k3s, rancher) will feat your requirements.
