Question

[Idea?] Load Balance as Service or DNS based.

It would be awesome if the Digital Ocean offered the Load Balance as a Service like the Amazon do with ELB. If my infrastructure were more bigger, maybe i create a new droplet only for it .

A DNS based Load Balance maybe resolve it. For example, if i create a “A” registry for each ip or only on “A” registry support more that one IP.

Even though this isn’t a feature right now, DO has a nice API you can use to achieve this. Either you can setup your own system to create & delete droplets as needed, or you can use something like what is in this tutorial here. https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/how-to-automate-the-scaling-of-your-web-application-on-digitalocean
