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.

Load Balancing easy done.
Yes I +100000000 this feature
I would also like such a cluster solution and could use it very well at the moment. What is the status?
Please help me
Helloo...... Plesk? Anyone there?
Having multiple servers behind a load balancer is critical for High Availability scenarios -- especially given how easy a LB is to implement no matter what architecture you're building on. The last we heard about this was March, and it's easily the most voted for suggestion. This has been pending since 2013. Anything? Come on, guys.
What about the development? Is there already an approximate date when this function will come?

Please implement it! This would have been great!

hello people, so such a solution (Synchronize Plesk Servers (Failover)) would be extremely important for us.
so if it is integrated with the next update it would be great.
we support this idea and function. thank you very much for implementing.

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.
