comment Gateway redundancy on a single subnet
I can't reserve an IP address for a gateway; I can request an instance which will be provisioned with an IP from the pool. If a gateway goes down and I spin up a replacement, configuration management will replace the current default route with the new default route. It takes time for this to happen though and I'm trying to minimize downtime.

Unfortunately not.

Instances do not and cannot control the private IP addresses assigned to them as they're managed by the software that runs the private cloud. Once I've provisioned a new instance with an IP in our subnet I must terminate that instance before that IP address becomes free. I can't reassign an unused IP address to an existing instance either. I apologize for my vague description of why CARP won't work; I was quite tired when I wrote it.

The current gateway equipment is a linux instance in a private cloud which, unfortunately, is far from reliable. Instances can often die in cloud environments.

I work in an environment where compute instances are spun up and spun down quite frequently. Instances may sometimes disappear as well. If a gateway instance dies I require servers inside the private cloud to be able to access the internet.
