Generic high availability abstraction for application possible?
in flag

I am currently examining the possibilities to make our existing server application highly available. The software handles messages that come via UDP resp. some higher level railway-specific protocols.

Is there a way (a framework or similar) to create an abstraction layer that takes care of redundancy and failover? I am thinking of something equivalent to a RAID controller with mirroring, but not  ...

I have configured a 2 node (VMs) cluster with SUSE High Availability Extension.

The cluster doesn't use shared disk. So Stonith is not really required. But the cluster keeps on asking for Stonith.

I've had experience building simple HA clusters with HAProxy and Keepalived on a single network and have a general idea how to do it when I control all the pieces (or in AWS). But here is my question

2 Different Public Address for High Availability
pf flag

this is my first time asking a question here, and I was wondering is it possible to have two different ISP public IPs connected to a single system for high availability?

for example, if our ISP 1 became offline the 2nd ISP will be available, just like google and youtube have different Public addresses, I am just at a loss where to config this.

we are currently using fortinet 300D.

Best practices for updates
in flag

We have a lot of Linux servers (Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server 7.9 running vmware) and most of the services are in containers docker. We want to implement a policy of updating our systems with minimal disruption of services.

What would be the best approach to update the system (patches, security patches and kernel) either to have no downtime or to have the shortest service downtime?
Thank you
