IIS geographical cluster

Good morning,
Is it possible to create a cluster between two IIS servers installed in two geographically distinct sites? My goal is to ensure that if site "A" falls, site "B" is reachable by clients in a fairly short time and therefore the navigation of the website can continue.

Thanks

Hi @robertovizzini-2048 ,

Yes, it is. The Microsoft documentation shows how to set up a failover cluster for IIS. The main steps are:

  1. Install the Web Server role on all cluster nodes. For details, see IIS 7 Deployment Guide.

  2. Install the failover clustering feature on all cluster nodes and create the cluster. For details, see Failover Cluster Deployment Guide.

  3. Set up a file share that will be used for the IIS shared configuration.

  4. Configure the IIS shared configuration on all cluster nodes.

  5. Configure IIS Offline Files for shared configuration on all cluster nodes.

  6. Configure the website (including the associated application pool), and specify the location of its content on one cluster node.

  7. Configure high availability for your website by creating a generic script in failover clustering.

You can get the documentation from this link.
