Ensure 24x7 Availability for Your Orion Platform Servers

SolarWinds Failover Engine (FoE) monitors the health of your Orion platform* server to ensure you never lose visibility. If something should happen to your primary Orion platform server, FoE automatically fails over to a remote server. The passive failover server assumes the full identity of the primary server and assumes all monitoring, alerting, reporting, and data collection. FoE’s switchover is an automatic, seamless, and transparent process that ensures data collection continuity. FoE is an ideal disaster recovery solution for networks that demand high availability and performance.
