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.
You got 600 vote and no action from so far. So frustrated. This company should work up and and beyond customers expectations. We don't have to peg to have a service.

Hello, do you mean you want to have panel itself to be configured behind Load Balancer, or do you mean that Plesk should be able to configure AWS ELB for created sites. What is your scenario in more details?
Bryan Williams commented
Elastic Load Balancer in AWS support by Plesk, I would like to be able to have AWS Plesk auto scale to periodic burst.
Plesk utility for synching files between different servers, for example:
There are different Plesk servers and I want to synchronize same content (scripts, sysadmin files, etc) between them.

500 votes and no Plesk-side reaction for serveral years.
@Plesk staff: please give any answer, whether it might be worth waiting for an urgent feature.
would be a great future to have an failover feature.
"me too" - would be happy with even basic synchronization features across servers, so all the typical Plesk-managed daemons get the same configs, but with the concept of IPv4/IPv6 addresses being different across the servers, so a site would effectively be assigned a server A and server B address, then leave the responsibility to load balance across them to me, as well as providing the underlying shared filesystem for /var/www/vhosts/.
it would be fine!
2013 ... gosch. It would also be good to have sync between subscriptions on different Plesk Servers.
As then Cloudflares IP based Loadbalancing would be awesome!!
please make a fail-over that can be used with two IPs and one server... that would be incrediably usefull.

All needed system tools are already available, you just need to write a GUI to set them up:
- MySQL supports replication; actually it can be set up via Tools & Settings > Database Servers > phpMyAdmin > Replication;
- Dovecot supports master/master replication using dsync: https://wiki.dovecot.org/Replication
- File replication: mmmmhh
