This section describes how Failover can be configured on the Fiorano Peer Server (FPS) in conjunction with FES High Availability. You can specify a Backup Peer Server as a contingency measure against the failure of the Primary Peer Server in the Fiorano network. If the default FPS fails, all components running on the peer connect to the backup FPS and continue to send and receive messages. This reconnection is completely transparent to the components. The state of the application is restored after each failover. The Fiorano Peer Server High Availability is implemented in both shared & replication mode. If there is a failure in the Active Server while it was processing the messages from the components, the Secondary Server assumes the Active role and continues to process the messages.
