Hello,

I'm running cPanel in a Virtuozzo environment.
I guess that Virtuozzo offers some kind of redundancy (maybe not?).

Does anyone knows if I'm able to use a failover. backup or a redundant service that is offered via Virtuozzo to cPanel in order to minimize downtime in failures ?

Thank you.

Hello

There are no native features with cPanel/WHM that support redundancy for services other than DNS. I have moved this over to our "Data Protection" forum for you where you may receive more input on this topic. Also, feel free to add your input to the following feature request:

Load Balancing

Thank you.

Hi Michael,

I'm aware that cPanel doesn't offer support for redundant services.

However the point of this thread is how feasible/able cPanel is to use redundant services offered by Virtuozzo.

Thank you for your reply.

Hi Eric,

Could you be more specific. How can I ask this function from a host ?

Thank you for your reply.

Any snapshot taken using OpenVZ or Virtuozzo would work to restore a VPS node to the state it was when the snapshot was taken.

The original question on whether this would work or cPanel is yes as others in this thread have already noted. It does work for cPanel to use a snapshot to restore the environment for the VPS node.

As for the question on how to do this, you would need to ask your provider or the provider of the system you are using (Virtuozzo being Parallels, OpenVZ being openvz.org).
