Private Network: A virtual private cloud (VPC) is available in each of the locations within the Edge VM network. User access is listed below.
- You get one default network with a pre-assigned RFC 1918 IP address space.
- You get the ability to create additional networks within the VPC container (up to 10 additional networks within each VPC).
- You can assign your own address space to each network created.
- A network can connect to the internet using a shared router within the VPC using dynamic network address translation (NAT).
- A network can route to another network using the same VPC router.
- If you require extra security within the VPC:
- You can assign security to each virtual machine to prevent unwanted traffic.
- You can attach virtual machines to these additional networks during provisioning.
- Each network created can support public IP assignments to virtual machines on the network via the floating IP function.
Public IP (floating IP): The public IP is assigned using a 1:1 network address translation (NAT) on your VPC router. Your virtual machine maintains its private IP address; any ingress or egress traffic to the internet uses the assigned public IP address.
