How to set up an S3 failover

Reviewed on 21 February 2022Published on 21 February 2022

The S3 failover feature allows you to redirect users to a static website hosted on Scaleway Object Storage, in the case that none of your Load Balancer’s backends are available. This website could be a simple, single webpage or else something much more complex: you build it according to your own requirements. You can set up an S3 failover during creation of your Load Balancer, or at any point after creation.
