What is floating point IP

Hi,

This is a general question about floating point IP's. From my understanding floating point IP's are set of IP's that is used by VM's to reach the external network like internet. Consider an example like I have 10 servers each with 128 cores. Total I want to run 1280 VM's at a time.. If all these VM's have to communicate with internet and accessible by users in external network whether I need 1280 different floating point IP's or not??

In my current scenario my external network is in range 141.60.71.0/24 and my physical router gateway is 141.60.71.1. While creating virtual router I need to use the same gateway as the physical router right?? Then floating point IP's should also be in 141.60.71.0/24 range right?? Which IP will comes out of the virtual router to external interface?? Because I have other physical machines using IP in the same range..
