Customer benefits from Cloud Networks¶
These are some of the ways in which Cloud Networks can be useful within your Cloud Servers configuration:
Isolate your servers
You can create servers without public or private (ServiceNet) network interfaces, making them accessible only through Cloud Networks.
Cloud Networks includes full support for broadcasting and multicasting as required for some clustering technologies.
Simplify network changes
You can make networking changes to existing deployments without having to rebuild your server.
Automate network changes
Via the Cloud Networks API, you can develop custom software to automatically create networks and attach or detach servers based on workload requirements.
Support complex topologies
You can combine Cloud Networks with Brocade Vyatta Routers to create complex topologies that route traffic between cloud networks or to external data centers over VPN.
Scale networks as you grow
You can attach up to 250 servers to a single cloud network. You can have up to 10 cloud networks per region.
