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.

At minimum, those who lost their backups during the OVH fire could have had their data safe if they had multiple FTP targets on Plesk ...
flix-host.de woud like to use it.

Does 1300 votes count for nothing?
@Freddy Cohen -> exactly !
It would be really important to be able to have multiple ftp distant servers !

The OVH SBG data center burned down, they are moving the information to other data centers, if plesk had high availability the impact would not have been so catastrophic for those who had hosted their data there.
A Datacenter just burned down.
I woud be Happy if we coud have an HA ontop of HA infrastructure.
HA works great until your data center burns down; i.e. OVH earlier this week.
It woud be cnce if you coud buy for proper money kind of an HA Setup With Master and ***** Nodes.
Yes HA on Proxmox / VMware or what ever is nice but anyways since datacenter still can burn down or whatever it woud be nice if you woud have a HA Setup ontop of your Infrastructure!

Exactly that, we are on the verge of ditching Plesk entirely due to this one missing feature as we can no longer risk the uptime of websites due to the lack of reliable failover
Then what about software failure that HA doesn't account for?
I have the feeling this should not be done by plesk.. Run your plesk server in a Virtual environment with HA..
Woud be Amazing!
Plesk seems to be mostly interested in clients who just want to spin up a VPS and put wordpress on it for $5/month. I don't think this feature, or any other feature important to a high availability / enterprise customer, will see much development time from them these days.

Just a reference for Ralph's comment and for Plesk team if they need some ideas :)

I raised this feature request seven years ago. Many people contributed thought and comments to this. In the whole time, there had been exactly 2 (two) answers from Plesk team. You find me speechless! I cannot understand, why Plesk ignores so many customers' wish.
There are useful tools like unison, dovecot replication and mysql master-master replication, that should be enough to fulfil most needs. And they are free...
For me, I found out, that other mothers do have beautiful daughters, too... I found my luck with ISPConfig and those above mentioned tools. It works and is reliable enough.
Thank you all for supporting my idea!
Yeah, it’s a shame that it takes so long...

There are open source alternatives if I am right, not sure what state they are at the moment. I guess they don't have yet any sync implemented as well. I think this kind of community/open source version would require also donations so the core developers are motivated or even working full time on this and so there is a traction on the development.
Another alternative is to get existing 3rd party Plesk Extentension developers create such extension and maybe raise some money for it. I don't really know what complexity is needed but if everyone who voted here donated $20 for that cause that could be enough budget if I am not wrong?
In any case, it is a fail to not communicate with this community and explain the state of this request regularly, or explain a complexity why it cannot be done at the moment.
Same for the .NET Core/NET 5 request.
Anyone want to start a community version of plesk/cpanel using technologies like gluster fs, ansible/puppet, mariadb galera and of course all the usual stuff that plesk/cpanel has apache/nginx etc... it's been too long for both cPanel and Plesk

It will be done when we have our first Colony in mars :)
