Overview

FortiWeb supports active-passive HA and active-active HA on OCI:

  • Active-passive HA: Configure two FortiWeb-VM instances in a HA group synchronizing configuration and sessions. One instance runs as the primary/master, while the other runs as the secondary/slave. When the primary fails to operate, the secondary automatically promotes itself to the primary.
  • Active-active HA: Use Load Balancer to achieve active-active HA. Two FortiWeb-VMs can be deployed and registered within a Load Balancer, so that the traffic is balanced between the two. When system failure occurs on either one of the FortiWeb-VMs, the other one handles all the traffic.

We only support two FortiWeb-VMs in an HA group on OCI.

  • For the FortiWeb HA group on OCI, configurations are synchronized through FortiWeb's HA feature, but the traffic distribution among HA cluster members is achieved by the load balancer instead.
  • Due to platform limitation, only one port (network interface) is allowed for the FortiWeb-VM HA member on OCI.
