Private load balancer

I want to have private load balancers such that my cluster is not accessible to public directly. A very common use case is:

Load balancer (public) -> api gateway servers -> load balancer (private) -> microservices -> load balancer (private) -> database servers

    Thank you for clearing this up Tyler. How about private Floating IP's for us that wants to set up the load balancer on our own, so that we have more control of the settings and can learn from managing it?

    Hey there,

    Load Balancers default to sending the traffic to private IP addresses if private networking is enabled on the target Droplets already! Does this address your use case?
