Hi, Just want to run this by some of you DO experts.

As I work on my cloud architecture, I want to eliminate all single points of failure. So I’d like 2 load balancers at the front of my cloud.

Does that mean all I have to do is add 2 A records to the domain name ....and the DO name servers will randomly choose which load balancer to direct to?

Thanks,

Tom

Hi, I’ll think about it....but I would like to still know the process by which I can roll my own and whether the DNS Name Servers will choose 1 of the 2 A records randomly. thank you though for your answer.

DigitalOcean Load Balancers are configured with automatic failover in order to maintain availability even when failures occur at the balancing layer:

DigitalOcean’s load balancer already provides redundancy behind the scenes. You could roll your own if you’d like; a managed solution available for $20 in my eyes is a better value.
