Using BGP to load balancing and failover an application to increase site reliability has traditionally been expensive and tricky. In this workshop, we’ll walk through setting up a multi-host load-balanced and fail-over web application using BGP and open source technologies including Terraform, BGP, BIRD, an open source router, and IPv6.
