Shared private IP address between two virtual machines.

Hi All,
I have a setup of:
- 2 webservers
- 2 high availablity nodes
- a database cluster

I am trying to configure active/active haproxy setup and i need a floating IP address for that. I can see the options of using azure load balancer , but i dont want single point of failure here, so i'm going with an IP address which will switch between HA nodes on failure. Can yanybody please suggest me if this is posible in azure? If not, please suggest alternate ways(no single point of failure).

Hi,
Azure Load Balancer is not a single point of failure. If you see just one resource that does not mean that the resource is not Highly Available. I would suggest looking at this document. You can also look at cross-region load balancer but I think that is not for your case.
