Floating IPs are mostly used to build a high availability environment.
Floating IPs are publicly exposed addresses that can be assigned to or removed from your chosen servers on demand within the same data center. Floating IPs are mostly used to build a high availability environment. As we like to say, they allow developers sleep well at night, knowing their architecture can withstand even the worst-case scenario when a server becomes unreachable for some reason. In such case, floating IP can be pointed to a redundant server to ensure high availability of your application. You can do so by using our client portal or our API.
