Private Networking Use CasesHere are some uses where Private Networking will bring you the most benefit
Private Networking can be used to isolate resources such as Databases, backups and logs from the internet. For example you can run a PostgreSQL instance and only allow connections from a web server instance.
Protect vulnerable parts of your infrastructure against attacks such as denial of service. Private Networking allows you to separate services from the public network on an internal layer 2 LAN.
Build highly available distributed web applications or microservices on Cloud VPS and VDS virtual machines using Private Networking to robustly communicate between instances.
"Private Networking with Contabo is a clean solution - it allows us to isolate our microservices and have them communicate directly. "
Private Networking: How Much Does It Cost?
At Contabo we believe you should only pay for what you need. As Private Networking requires additional networking infrastructure, such as top of the rack switches, we decided to charge an extra fee only if you need this feature. The monthly fee is:
€2.29 for each Cloud VPS,
€5.79 for each Cloud VDS.
