F5 cluster in Azure - why ALB is suggested in fornt?


Recently we are building F5 cluster in Azure. Regular stuff, with VIPs and RServers behind the F5, maybe SSL termination.

Initially we wanted to build it in classic way. Public IP in front + DNS entry (no need for DNS LB), next NAT it to F5 Outside/DMZ IP - nothing fancy.

Yet vids I see in Internet suggst to use Azure LB in front of F5 LB and directing traffic from Azure LB to F5 self IPs, not floating IPs

Could you tell me what is the reason? Azure has some issues with floating IP?
