Applicability in RTC solutions

It is not always possible to have multiple active instances of the same component in service, such as an active–active cluster of N nodes. An active–standby configuration provides the best mechanism for HA. For example, the stateful components in an RTC solution, such as the media server or conferencing server, or even an SBC or database server, are well-suited for an active–standby setup. An SBC or media server has several long running sessions or channels active at a given time, and in the case of the SBC active instance failing, the endpoints can reconnect to the standby node without any client-side configuration due to the floating IP.
