Floating IP addresses behave like a normal address, therefore it can be assigned to a particular server on any interface, for example on a loopback. A floating IP address can be redirected within 10 seconds.
A floating IP address can be redirected to another instance within the same region in under 10 seconds, either using the control panel or API, forming the required basis for high-availability setups.
Our floating IP address system has been built from the ground to be fully dual-stack ready. This means that a floating IP address consists of a single IPv4 address and a /64 IPv6 subnet.
