(Question above). Also what kind of thing do you have planned for it will the nodes communicate with the elastic IP sending utilisation figures? Will it be session based such as I'm thinking of this in a game server logic here.

You can follow the progress toward this feature on DigitalOcean's Customer Feedback forum: movable IP from VM to VM ("elastic IP").

Hi! This is a pretty old thread, but just wanted to add a quick update. We’ve just recently added support for Floating IPs. You can get all the information in this article:

by Melissa Anderson
A DigitalOcean Floating IP is a publicly-accessible static IP address that can be mapped to one of your Droplets. A Floating IP can also be instantly remapped, via the DigitalOcean Control Panel or API, to one of your other Droplets in the same datacenter. This instant remapping capability grants you the ability to design and create High Availability (HA) server infrastructures by adding redundancy to the entry point, or gateway, to your servers.
