Private VLAN: Combining Servers Into a Single Network

Private VLAN: Combining Servers Into a Single Network

If you rent or host several servers within our data center, you can combine them into a single closed network based on Private VLAN (PVLAN) technology.

Two servers can be directly connected using an Ethernet cable. This service is provided free of charge.

If you have more than two servers that need to be combined, you will need switches with the configuration of separate VLAN. This service is paid. The current cost of connecting a Private VLAN is provided on the RENT A SERVER and HOST A SERVER pages in the ADDITIONAL SERVICES section.

Please note that a Private VLAN can be set up on either a 100 Mbit/s port or a 1 Gbit/s port.

By default, each server has two network ports: LAN-0 and LAN-1. One port is normally used for Internet access, whilst the second can be configured with a Private VLAN. However, we can install additional network cards, for example to aggregate ports into LACP trunks.

For your high-load projects (cluster systems, disk arrays, etc.), we can offer you optical switches with ports of up to 10 Gbit/s, on individual terms.

Our specialists will set up the Private VLAN within one day. Please contact our technical support to order a service.
