Nowadays, connectivity has increased a lot in between Computers and all this communication is possible all because of the internet protocol (IP). An Internet Protocol address (IP address) is a numerical label determined to each device connected to a computer network that uses the Internet Protocol for communication.
An IP address serves two principal functions – it identifies the host or network interface, and it provides the location of the host in the network. The IP address space is managed in the entire globe by the Internet Assigned Numbers Authority (IANA), and by five Regional Internet Registries (RIRs). IP version 4 (IPv4) defines an IP address as a 32-bit number and a new version of IP (IPv6), using 128 bits for the IP address, was standardised in 1998.
SPS for Linux IP Recovery Kit
The protection of an IP address is the topmost priority. The SIOS Protection Suite for Linux Internet Protocol (IP) Recovery Kit provides a complete mechanism that will recover an IP address. The Recovery Kit reacquires it from a failed primary server to a backup server in a LifeKeeper environment. The IP Recovery Kit defines an IP address that can use to connect to a LifeKeeper-protected application. As with other LifeKeeper resources, IP resource switchovers can initiate automatically as a result of failure or manually by administrative action.
The IP Recovery Kit provides the implementation of the TCP/IP protocol suite using secondary addresses on existing network interfaces. The recovery kit also allows providing switchover and failover of IP addresses without requiring extra standby network, interface cards or dummy IP addresses. The IP Recovery Kit supports both the version’s addresses, i.e. IPv4 and IPv6. It also includes fault detection and recovery.
