Synchronize Plesk Servers (Failover)
Keep two (or more) Plesk servers in sync for a failover scenario.
Migration Manager only allows manual "sync"
Hello! Please take a few moments to answer several questions about Failover. This will not take long!
UPDATE: Survey is closed now. Thank you.

Can someone from Plesk advise if there is any plan to incorporate this feature? So many votes and comments yet still in the dark. Appreciate some light from Plesk on this.
To have a Plesk synchronization is very useful. We do really need it.
I also wanna hear what Plesk is thinking about this
Dennis Rahmen commented
Yeah, an update on this would be nice!
I would like to know the progress as well!
Knowing the risk of wasting my time, but I have to ask: Any progress?

Thinking about this logically and outloud here.
But is this not any different than adding redundancy for any other product?
I feel like we don't need Plesk to do this. MySQL is the main item here. You generally need a cluster design in place, to add redundancy, and each approach has caveats (performance, accuracy, delay, read/write masters, you choose. each one is a pill to swallow).
So if we are to duplicate the server, let's talk linux for a second.
That is supremely easy, since it's just files, and permissions.
Install plesk on both, sync the folders and files... simple.
Windows IIS is a bit more challenging, due to how bindings are managed. THAT would require code.
The last bit is to have something like nginx sitting in front, to proxy requests via stream over port 80/443 down to your intended ip address.
This would be a huge undertaking for Plesk to achieve.
Your taking a single-node designed service, and elevating it to cloud-level logistics.
I personally will not be waiting for Plesk to achieve such a task, that could take years.
Still waiting feedbacks and the implementation for this feature.
I'm tired to configure rsync synchronization between servers to balance the load between them. That would be nice to have it by native in Plesk as this is really time consuming.
please implement it!
This thread has been open for just about 7 years. Plesk is one of the top control panels in the web industry. What I absolutely do NOT understand is, why is this discussion still open for discussion and not implemented, and why would it be so difficult if another control panel (Interworx) can do it (which I am quite sure has a much smaller team) and has been doing it for quite some time.
Plesk should allow us to focus on productivity and growing our business without fear or concerns of DOWNTIME because we do not have a failsafe/failover configuration.
Quite a bit disappointed in Plesk that we're still actually talking about this in March 2020, even after this suggestion being a top in suggestions.
@anon, I know they acquired the company. What I wanted to say is not worth migrating from cPanel to Plesk.
@JackLinkers well cPanel or Plesk does not matter as its the same head to where the money flows...
After reading :
I was confident Plesk was HA compatible, but discovered it's NOT among other MUST HAVE features in modern web, such as .webp support in PHP GD...
Plesk has a lot of interesting features, but most important are missing...
Well, bye bye Plesk, I'm sticking with cPanel
I just talked about small numbers of site (30 domains), but most of them have multiple servers, each having 200s+ sites.
I'm hosting 200+ domains on ISPConfig with a cluser & master/***** setup for the best redundancy and HA.
I came to Plesk again (Yes changed it many times due to lack of such features), but still those features are missing.
We want to use Plesk, we want to stick with you, we trust you. But please do something to surprise us.
It's not just about voting (where its the most voted feature), don't you think HA "High Availability" matters?
We use Plesk to host multiple sites more than 30 at least, every single site is important. If something happens to one Plesk node, then it will bring down all 30 sites.
And it's not 2010, it's 2020, people will move to other hosting companies in a matter of minutes. Because they have those essential features built-in, even without any public voting or UserVoice.
They built such features because they are required by current market situations, by current application needs.
Its 2020, and you guys have not started working on this feature yet or even updated the UserVoice channel recently.
Here @Ralph has moved from Plesk to ISPConfig, I came here again in Obsidian from ISPConfig, Where I miss such must-have features in a paid product. Things which are available in free open source projects from years, is still not available in a product like Plesk? Really?
Dear @Plesk, you should change your internal development rules (whatever you call it), if that is making the overall process slow.
It's not only ISPConfig but many other platforms have more essential features then Plesk... CyberPanel (from LiteSpeed) is also an evolving product which such features.
Kindly please have a look at those control panels, and see which features should be available in Plesk as per the 2020 era.
Wohooo, 1k votes. That should make us happy, cause now they will act.....or.....

I ask the support about the two most voted request and the guy sad that he "pointed out the attention of our developers on it". As you see in the attached image.
This have been requested over a 6 years time already. one wonder if this thread is monitored at all. Plesk, do you hear us?
I Follow this feature suggestion for a while too now (thanks to you) and have read your comment when you decided to switch to ISPconfig. I tried to switch too but I definitly prefer plesk... And too hard to change when you use Plesk since the time it was named "parallel" plesk :).
So I've made my self-automated-failover-sync with the migration manager command line tool provided by plesk. It's not as clean as a dedicated tool and sometimes "bugged" and a hard pain to manage but that does the job. So far...
Nevertheless I still think your suggested feature is a must have one. So Plesk what are you waiting about ?
