ARIN IP Failover blocks




ARIN IP Failover block



Additional personalized IPs for your server






Overview


With an ARIN IP Failover block, you can assign a block of 4 to 256 additional IP addresses to the dedicated servers and virtual machines of your choice.

The ARIN IP Failover block is an ideal solution to enhance the continuity of services for your applications ("fail over"). It allows you to optimize your SEO and geolocate your IPs to Canada or the USA.

Continuity of service ("Failover")

Thanks to the Failover technology, you switch the IP addresses on your block from one server to another in less than a minute (without interruption of services to your users).

After: After the change to the Failover IP, the flow of visitors is redirected to server B.


The Failover system has been adopted by our clients to:

Virtualisation

As your research and development of your new virtualized server comes to an end, you'll want to configure a public IP for each virtual machine (VM). The right solution is our ARIN Failover Block.

OVH allows you to associate the media access control address (MAC address) of a virtual machine to a Failover IP and deploy your VMs with any hypervisor in "Bridge mode".

Using an ARIN IP Failover block you can create your own addressing plan, based on your services, clients and applications.

You can also manage the reverse DNS (PTR) for the IP within your OVH manager.
