In order to improve the robustness of your system, VOS Cloud is offering the capability to pair the CloudLinks (CL). Let's take this simple example: 

You already have one CL called "CL1", and now you want redundancy on it. You will need to prepare another CL. Enter your login and password. Now you can see it on the VOS Cloud GUI:

Click on "Register/Pair":

Select "Pair", then CL1", and then click "Save":

 Now both CloudLinks are paired. Under "CL1", you will see "CL1-A" and "CL1-B". Click "Save":

Now, let's create a source based on the "CL1" CloudLink. Click "Create":

Use this source to create a channel:

The pairing of the CL is working in active/passive mode. The stream is coming from "CL1-A":

The switching conditions from CL-A to CL-B are:
  • CL-A is no longer connect to the VOS Cloud (network issue, loss of server)
  • Video steams are missing in front of the CL
If one of the conditions above are met, the VOS Cloud provides an alarm on the transcoded channel:

VOS Cloud is switching from "CL1-A" to "CL1-B" for the input, and the transcoded channel is back:
