Hey @schoen thanks so much for the prompt response. It’s as you mentioned
Cloudflare DNS -> DO Load Balancer -> web app1/2
One VM can probably handle the requests with caching, but what I’m trying to solve is redundancy so that I have flexibility of tearing down or modifying the servers in case I need to scale in the future.
Since Cloudflare has their Strict and Flexible https service, if I have Strict enabled, that just means I need to install a cert on the DO Load Balancer as the origin server, is that right? So the servers behind the Load Balancer are http? If they were https, would that cause any issues? Cloudflare https -> DO Load Balancer https -> web app https?
