Synchronize Plesk Servers (Failover)
Keep two (or more) Plesk servers in sync for a failover scenario.
Migration Manager only allows manual "sync"
We hear you and see a clear demand for this feature.
I want to say that implementing these features requires a lot of investment, and in 2021 Plesk team keeps focusing on the delivery of other improvements (sad, but true).
We will back to the re-evaluation of these features at the beginning of the next year.
Please continue to share your use cases and requirements, and it would really helpful if you point to existing solutions that we can review and check before implementation.
Your feedback is important to us. Thank you, everyone.

Guys it’s on the roadmap for this year.
I think we can hold our criticism for when it still is not delivered till the end of the year.
Currently this feature is expected by the end of this year.

Do we need another 10 years for evaluation ?
I hope not.
Thanks a lot for your «extra» support for this amazing platform.
Cpanel is already working on high availability. Which seems to also include scalability. So Plesk will just be get left behind.
Within that post, I comment before few years, and I give a voting.
Actually - I am waiting over 5 Years (since 2016) for a failover feature within that post. I pay a lot of money for my Plesk licenses.
All few years, you write a new comment to that post. That's all. So 2021 your focus already on other features.
So Sorry - if we not hear a release date for failover functions within year 2022 for that failover feature, I have to leave Plesk and change all to other systems.
So sorry, but 5 Years, are too much! Feature is wished in that forum since 2013.

really? 2022 and yet this is not implemented?

This is extremely hard with shared hosting. Cannot see it work.
For system critical Wordpress instances, I'll recommend looking at Virtuozzo platform for Wordpress.

We have a few WordPress websites which are requiring 100% uptime.
My vision for this would be to first get the Customer Account syncing between multi servers. I want the same credentials on different servers, even if different domains are hosted elsewhere. I want a true centralised DNS. I want ONE place to go and setup web hosting, but then choose which server to apply to.
Then we can look at high availability. And that may be a case that in the central location, you can specify which servers should take part in the high availability aspect, and enable a domain, or a subscription as being high availability, then that information can be replicated between those servers.
cPanel look like they're implementing high availability for a Q4 release, so it does seem like Plesk need to up their game.
Yes could be some investment. But there are ways how to automate migrations although not the best way but we use automated crons to rsync and restart migrations so both servers are in sync. Maybe if you guys could use a similar concept it should work. Happy to help and contribute toward the project. You can just add a schedule tab to the migration interface.

this would be great
Dennis Rahmen commented
They are doing it!!!
Implementing of data replication could be more than enough for a start.

revoked my voice for this. after getting more and more insight to cloud computing, I understand that this feature never will work with plesk.
there's no chance to failover a plesk server with customer projects securely. each web app needs his own way for failover scenarios and how to handle this. to failover a plesk server with aprox. 100 customer domains, websites, databases, emails and much more will never work......

9 years after this request, there's still no real Failover solution for Plesk!
It would be nice to get an update on this. I think Plesk is great software but new features are coming very slow! I you are serious about your website running on Plesk it is really important to have some sort of Failover solution.
At least give an update on one of the most requested features!
Laurent Henni commented
This is the most requested suggestion...

Any updates planned for 2022?
