ip / url redirect
Posted on 2016-09-26
I have a set of pooled servers and for deployment reasons , I want to use a " Blue /Green" deployment for updates . So essentially, the current production is "Blue " ( v1) and when we update a client , they are moved to "Green" v2 . For example, there are 4 servers in the pool , server1( blue) , server2 ( blue), server3 ( green) , server4 ( green) . The external ip is the same and points to all 4, but only 2 ( blue/current prod) are active , and I wish to redirect ONE CLIENT AT A TIME to green set during an update . This is a 2012 R2 IIS8 environment and each client site is hosted on the same internal ip using a wildcard cert . Example , client1.somedomain.ca, client2.somedomain.ca
Since I do not wish to change the public dns records , I need a way to redirect the traffic to the green set ( new ip internal pool) . Initially, I was going to have my could provider configure an irule on the f5 bigip device for this and redirect the traffic this way , but I wish to maintain control over the redirecting of each client from either within IIS or using a proxy service
is there a way to use a service or something in IIS8 to achieve the same result ?
