Hi, Cloud Noob here. I find DO docs and QA as my life saver countless times.
I have alays been monolith until I had a server outage which costed 12 hours of downtime for my SaaS.
I run a webserver at my office which has a public static IP Address, and have started to create DO roplets. Can I use digital ocean’s load balancers, to safely route traffice between the two? For example, if my home office server fails, can it route it to a DO droplet easily?
I am only interested in HTTP routing. Needs to be HTTP/2 (due to GRPC).

I believe that the Managed DigitalOcean Load Balancers could only be used with DigitalOcean assets like Droplets and Managed Kubernetes services.
Also, all Droplets must be in the same VPC network as the Load Balancer.
If you want to load balance external resources like an office service, you could use HAProxy instead. Here is a very good tutorial on how to get started with HAProxy:
Hope that this helps. Regards, Bobby
