What are Cloud Private Networks?
Our Cloud Private Networks provide isolation and security for communication between servers using dedicated VLAN’s. Every customer has one private VLAN included free of charge. Additional VLAN’s can be purchased allowing maximum flexibility and control of your connectivity.
Why use Cloud Private Networking?
ome servers may not need direct internet connectivity. Some applications run across several tiers. Cloud Private Networks allow the secure connectivity between servers on an isolated network.
Servers may have a single interface on a Cloud Public Network or Cloud Private Network. Alternatively a single server may have multiple interfaces, one connected to a Cloud Public Network and another connected to a Cloud Private Network, or multiple Cloud Private Networks. Customers have complete control.
Cloud Private Networks are connected at 10Gbps and we don’t charge for any bandwidth on Cloud Private Networks.
Cloud Private Networks allow connectivity between servers running in the same Datacentre site, additionally we can stretch the same cloud private network across between our Data Centre locations (Interconnected site VLANS’s). Servers can operate on the same subnet across both sites with no additional routing. This helps to simplify configuration and points of failure.
How do I use Cloud Private Networking?
There are many use cases for our Cloud Private Networking solution, including Tiered Applications and Firewalling Solutions. Cloud Private Networks are simple to configure via our Control Panel.
