For a redundant VPS environment, you need at least two VPSs that are spread over two different availability zones. There are two ways to place a VPS in a specific availability zone:
- During the ordering process you choose in which availability zone your VPS is placed
- You can clone an existing VPS to another availability zone
If you order a VPS from our website, you will get the option to choose an availability zone for your VPS while putting your order together, as in the example below.
You can also see how many VPSs you have in an availability zone. Click the arrow behind 'You have X VPSs in this zone' to get an overview of the VPSs in that zone.
Please note: If you use this option, you will have to manually configure each VPS to use the same configuration for your redundant setup. Therefore, we recommend that you fully configure one VPS and clone it (see below).
