Virtual Private Cloud (VPC) Overview

Last Updated on 2020-06-30

Features

A Virtual Private Cloud (VPC) is a private network interface which makes the server practical, maximizing users' data privacy and security with true isolated instances. Due to the public disconnection of VPC, users cannot access the server & simply upload or download data via the public network (E.g. SSH), hence they can be benefited from optimized data protection by placing sensitive data and works in isolated server.

Initial Setup of Virtual Private Cloud

You must need to use our CentOS 8 VPC template and manually modify the private network settings with your preferred IP through the console for the Virtual Private Cloud to be functional.

Regional Availability

Virtual Private Cloud is available in every region.
