    It is possible to add the same IP address to more than 1 VM already, you can select to show already allocated IPs.
     

    You would just need to use some cluster software to handle flipping the IP between VMs.

    Unfortunately due to OnApp firewall restrictions the sharing of the same IP between two or more VMs is not possible.

    That is incorrect, you can add the same IP to more than 1 VM.  There is an option for it to "show used ips".

    To confirm, Trent is correct here, however this option does need to be enabled in Settings > Configuration > Defaults > Allows to start more than one Virtual Server with the same IP

    That could be why you were not seeing it previously Andrew.

    We do this in a LOT of places and are known for complaining when it breaks! Since OnApp 3.0 stay away from keepalived as its multicast based and use heartbeat on linux.
