Communication with k8s/loadbalancer and a droplet in same DC - billed?
Hello, I have a scenario like this: https://www.digitalocean.com/community/questions/private-communication-between-a-external-droplet-and-a-pod-in-k8-cluster
It seems the only way to address the cluster is via the load balanced (and therefore public) IP.
I can do this from a droplet in the same DC (at <1ms latency), so it works, and I can use a firewall to limit access.
My question is, will I be billed for this communication, since it technically uses the public IP address, even though the machines are in the same DC?
