Overview

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

  • high volume active-active HA: Configure two FortiWeb-VM instances in a HA group synchronizing configuration and sessions. Both instances in the HA group process traffic. We use load balancer to distributes traffic to all the HA members. If an instance is down, it will be ignored by the load balancer for traffic distribution. If the failed instances is the master node, one of the slave instances immediately takes its role to become the new master.
  • 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.
Active-active-standard mode is no longer supported. After upgrading to 6.3.6 and higher versions, FortiWeb-VMs with this mode will automatically switch to active-active-high-volume mode.

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.
