Docker failover: Redis, MySQL and Nginx

Currently we have Redis master and Redis slave containers. MySQL master and MySQL slave containers. Both replicating.

How would we handle a failure on one of the master containers? Should I be using something like Nginx as a forward proxy to detect connection failures?

    For the replication of MySQL I suggest configuring MySQL in a master <-> master approach and setup an HAProxy load balancer over them, as eugeneware does in It is very easy to set up using an HAProxy Docker container.

    For Redis it definitely looks like you need Sentinel: In you can find a docker image for Sentinel.

    I don’t think using a proxy like Nginx is an appropriate solution for both problems.

    Docker will be the best open platform for developers and sysadmins to build, ship, and run distributed applications.
