CirrusGrid PaaS provides users with Shared Load Balancer (SLB) as a default single entry point for all of the hosted applications, located on the hardware nodes. However, for the production environments, it is recommended receiving and processing the requests via Public IP address(es) that form a direct connection between the Internet and a specific container. Compared to the access over SLB, such approach ensures more secure and effective interaction.
Public IP can be attached to any software stack in your environment (except, Memcached node), representing a more stable solution with less risk to be affected by other applications. Also, it opens access to such features as FTP add-on, Custom SSL, remote debugging from IDE, WebSockets, etc.
CirrusGrid supports two versions of the Internet Protocol:
In order to bind an external IP address to the required node, you need to set the required number of Public IPv4 / Public IPv6 within the central part of the topology wizard window.
Note: In case of attaching external IPs for the horizontally scaled nodes, each container within the layer will be supplied with its own set of addresses.
To find and manage the allocated IPs in the existing environment, expand the appropriate node string in the environment topology list.
Here, upon hovering over IPs, you can get access to the following functionality:
