What is a Highly Available IP address?

A Highly Available IP address is the IP, the frontend listens to. It provides a special configuration and is by default routed to the primary Load Balancer instance. In case of a failure of the primary Load Balancer instance, this address is automatically rerouted to the replicated one. This is done automatically, by the Load Balancer control subsystems.

By default, each Load Balancer is created automatically with a Highly Available IP. When you delete a Load Balancer, you can keep the HA IP allocated to your account for 1€ a month and reuse it later. HA IP is not compatible with Compute instances, as well as you can’t use an IP address, earlier allocated for a compute instance, for a Load Balancer.
