Share IP addresses

Configure shared IPs.

IP sharing allows IP address reassignment (also referred to as IP failover) from one Linode to another if the primary Linode becomes unresponsive. This means that requests to the primary Linode's IP address can be automatically rerouted to secondary Linodes at the configured shared IP addresses.

IP failover requires configuration of a failover service (such as Keepalived) within the internal system of the primary Linode.

Note. A public IPv4 address cannot be shared if it is configured for a 1:1 NAT on a vpc purpose Configuration Profile Interface.
