This section provides an overview of SNAP HA™ architecture and provides design principles to apply when planning HA implementation. SoftNAS offers two approaches to Virtual IPs provide the capability of extending a common IP address across AZs . Virtual IPs provided the capabiltiy through routing, and permit fully private VPCs. Virtual IPs are Buurst's best practice recommendation, as they ensure none of your IP addresses are public-facing, improving the security of your deployment.Alternatively, Elastic IPs are the legacy solution, and were previously the only supported cross-zone routable IP addresses available in the
SoftNAS SNAP HA™ takes a basic EC2 elastic IP and layers on additional patent-pending functionality that turns it into an Elastic HA IP - a cross-zone IP suitable for highly-available network-attached storage. Both solutions are fully supported and can be implemented using the information below.
