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.

Hi dear Plesk Team and dear IgorG,
Since my last message, another 8 months have passed about 240 days and unfortunately there is no update on your part and no news about it and for this reason I propose the same question that I already asked you 8 months, obviously updated on everything the time that you have still passed without doing anything while we customers in bulk continue to pay you a lot of money and to request this very important function but apparently you do not care at all the opinion of thousands of your customers who continue to enrich you without get no answer from you and in the meantime ...
Any news about the Plesk feature request for HA (High Availability) Cluster and LB (Load Balancing) Cluster ?
This feature request on Plesk Uservoice it is the most requested and voted in absolute, in fact it is in place number 1, have over 1369 votes, over 180 comments and was created on 31 December 2013 so over 8 years and 7 months ago (also on March 10, 2020 you also created a survey for this feature request) !!!
How is it possible that the Plesk Team failed to implement it in over 3130 days (almost 9 years) ?
I can understand that it involves a fair amount of work and many changes in Plesk but almost 9 years of time seems more than enough to implement this feature request, also considering that Plesk is not free and also costs a lot, you should offer more to your paying customers.
After nearly 9 years of waiting, over 1369 votes and over 180 comments, it would be much more serious of you to make it clear that you will never implement this feature request !!!
I look forward to receiving an official and definitive response from the Plesk Team here.
Obviously I invite all Plesk users and customers interested to make themselves heard and participate in this discussion in order to have an answer and some updates from Plesk !!!

Thanks in advance for the support.

Very very necessary, by the way this is already possible with IPSConfig and Unison... :-(

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!
Sending Regards from Frankfurt.

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!
