Building servers without PublicNet or ServiceNet¶
If a server is built without a PublicNet or ServiceNet network, it cannot access certain Rackspace products and services.
As shown in the following figure, PublicNet and ServiceNet are essential to a fully functional cloud configuration.
- PublicNet provides a server with access to the Web as well as Cloud Monitoring, Cloud Backup, Managed Cloud Support, and operating system updates.
- ServiceNet provides a server with access to Cloud Databases, Cloud Load Balancers, Cloud Files, Cloud Backup, RackConnect, and Windows activation.
