Hey @kdgaming0,

I’ve not used Kemp Freeload Balancer before however, you can check their documentation if that’s possible:

https://freeloadbalancer.com/

You can use other Virtualizations like KVM for example if you are not acquainted with VMware. You can check the Possibilities here :

Having said that, DigitalOcean do not recommend nested virtualization on the platform because there is often very poor performance. Instead, containerization is normally the better option.

In order to install a KVM machine, you need to prepare a custom image. Custom images are Linux and Unix-like images you import to DigitalOcean. You can create Droplets based custom images, which lets you migrate and scale your workloads without spending time recreating your environment from scratch.
