comment Load balanced solution on EC2 with IIS app servers behind single IP address
Yes - me too but it's a business requirement. For this reason I believe I need to configure my own setup instead of ELB. If you write an answer based on your info above (why it's a bad idea to do what I have done) I will accept it as the answer

Hi Marco - sorry I was not clear enough - CNAME is no good for us - we need clients to point their DNS A record at our service so they can linkup a top level domain: eg pete.com -> IP Address. With CNAME they can only point at www.pete.com

All valid (and useful) reasoning Marco - however we need users to be able to point the root domain at our service. This would only be achievable if they were using Route 53 I think - which we can't force them to use... I think really what you are saying is the ELB is not valid for our scenario and I should be doing this manually with haproxy instead..

Thanks Marco - we need a static IP address in front of the instance as users will be pointing their own DNS at this service so they need an IP address for an A record...
