Private By Default

When your account is created, you’re automatically generated a basic, sane & secure, Private Network. All of your network traffic travels through your own Private Network, and you aren’t forced to share your tubes with anyone.

Separate & Secure

You are provided with encrypted & encapsulated routing that no other users, or even your own routers, can access without explicitly connecting them. With VPC, even internet connectivity is optional; VPN or internal traffic only if you choose.

Feature Rich

Cloud-A’s VPC Networking infrastructure allows you to manage every piece of your private network; from Routers and Subnets to Security Groups, and DHCP Agents to Load Balancers — It’s all available and ready to scale out instantly.

Easy To Configure

Using the Network Overview dashboard, you gain a high level picture of even the most complicated network configurations to help you architect or troubleshoot network connectivity with ease.

Virtual Private Cloud Networking Overview

Cloud-A’s Virtual Private Cloud (VPC) Networking allows you to create on demand virtual network appliances for your entire stack within our public cloud environment. This allows for complete isolation from all other customer data using the infrastructure. The isolation between private networks is provided through encrypted traffic tunnels per tenant, and completely private IP subnets. This, in effect allows your servers to run in a “virtually private” cloud — as if your infrastructure isn’t shared at all; partly due to our strict commitment of not over-committing compute resources.

VPC marries your traditional public infrastructure with virtually private networking to deliver complete environmental control, without all the metal.

Best of all, the basic Cloud-A Private Network functionality comes pre-bundled with your account. We believe that it’s not possible to run a business application in the cloud without it, and we’re here to enable you. Virtual Private Cloud Networking can provide premium features as well, such as managed Load Balancers. Check out our pricing page for more information on cost.

Private Networks & Subnets

All networks have a dedicated, encrypted tunnel. This allows us to separate and mask traffic completely.

  • Easy-to-use Dashboard Overview
  • VPN Connectivity Support
  • Dedicated DHCP servers per Subnet
  • Configurable DNS & Host Routes


The connectivity hub of your network, you can join routers with other routers, or attach VM ports to the interfaces.

  • Set DNS records
  • Define custom routes
  • Internet connectivity optional
  • Manage external gateways
  • NAT floating IPs

Security groups

Security groups act as a firewall on your network, restricting all traffic on a port-by-port basis using a simple rules based mechanism.

  • Add rules for multiple protocols
  • Span multiple port ranges
  • CIDR based IP restriction
  • Applies per individual port

Load Balancing as a Service

Cloud-A’s VPC Load Balancers are able to manage online traffic by spreading traffic across multiple servers. Load Balancers can help optimize your workload performance and prevent overload to enable you build a robust and performant system for your users.

Advanced Routing Algorithms

Choose from multiple advanced routing algorithms to balance load across your pool members such as round robin, least connections, or source IP, all tune-able using weights.

Multiple Balancing Methods

Load balance HTTP & HTTPS traffic, as well as any other TCP service (i.e. MYSQL, PostgreSQL, RabbitMQ, Redis, SMTP, IMAP).

Health Monitors

Built-in monitoring and fail-over continuously watches the connection between the load balancer and its members to determine where it’s safe to route traffic. Members who are determined unfit do not receive traffic until they return to being healthy.

Session Persistence

Manage application session persistence methods, choosing between Source IP, or a customizable HTTP Cookie to help ensure sticky users to application servers.

Advanced API Controls

You can unlock the full power of Load Balancers via the API, quickly managing all aspects of Load Balancer Pools, Pool Members, Health Monitors, and Virtual IPs.
