Is floating IP (or CARP) supported when you use 2 FreeBSD droplets?

I would like to setup 2 droplets with FreeBSD 10, where the servers can act as fail-over for each other.

Is this possible?

Floating IPs seems to be implemented using a loadballancer, this means you’ll be able to use it on any OS, the OS doesn’t have to be aware of it, but the application should (sessions etc.) if possible.

You won’t be able to use CARP.
