I have an Amazon Elastic Load Balancer. I can't set my domain apex -- domain.com to the ELB because Amazon doesn't provide an IP.
- set up a new EC2 instance (whih has its own IP)
- set up a reverse proxy from EC2 to ELB (HAProxy? Apache? Nginx?)
- point my DNS to the new EC2 instance that is proxying
What consequences will I face? Does this make the ELB pointless since my single EC2 instance is a a point of failure? Will the EC2 proxy be able to handle it if each instance in the ELB gets 100s of GBs of bandwidth a day?
