vRack Private Network
An isolated private network to connect all your OVHcloud services together, across all OVHcloud datacentres.
The vRack Private Network allows you to build complex private infrastructures on a global multi-datacentre scale. You can also expose your vRack to the public Internet if you need to publically expose some of your services.
Build your private infrastructure
Isolated private network
The vRack private network is isolated from the Internet, and from other customers' traffic.
Segment your network by creating multiple logically isolated networks (up to 4000 VLANs).
Thanks to the vRack API and customer portal, you can easily manage your vRack and its attached services.
Compatible with most OVHcloud services
The vRack private network allows to connect public cloud instances, hosted private cloud, baremetal servers and load balancers.
Hybrid & Multi-Cloud
To accommodate hybrid & multi-cloud needs, interconnect your on-premise network with OVHcloud using vRack and OVHcloud Connect.
Global private network
The vRack private network spans across all OVHcloud datacentres, allowing you to interconnect any eligible service to any datacentres, facilitating the global presence of your application, and allowing for high availability or fault-tolerant architectures.

The vRack enables you to isolate your critical servers within a private VLAN. Your data is secure and communication between your servers is not routed via the public network.
Multiple VLAN & Multiple datacentre architecture
The vRack is a private network that spreads across all OVHcloud datacentres, allowing you to build a highly available or distributed worldwide infrastructure for your applications, to the datacentres of your choice.
Deploy up to 4000 private VLANs to isolate your servers to filter customer access and secure your data.
Multiple service architecture
The vRack adapts to the needs of your business. Build your infrastructure using the products and services of our Baremetal, Public Cloud or Private Cloud universes.
Connect your on-premise network to vRack with OVHcloud Connect, to allow hybrid cloud configurations.
Publically expose your applications in the vRack by using Additional IP blocks, and set up high availability protocols such as VRRP.
Compatible OVHcloud services provide two ways to communicate:
- Public Interface(s) to the internet
- vRack (Private) interface(s)
The vRack interface is the one that will be attached to the customer's private network. For more details on available bandwidth options and specific conditions per product category:
For the specific case of Additional IPs, a public bandwidth capacity limit applies. It is limited to 1000Mpbs (egress, per datacenter).

You can use Additional IP with vRack Private Network. Routing your Additional IP block to the vRack gives you more flexibility on public addressing and provides the ability to use high-availability protocols like VRRP for your public-facing services.
With our OVHcloud Connect hybrid connection solution, you can set up a secure, high-performance link between your company network and the OVHcloud vRack, then enables hybrid and multi-cloud setups.
Our load balancers are able to forward traffic to backend servers connected to a vRack, allowing you to publicly expose a service through the load balancer while your actual servers remain on a private network.
In the words of our customers
“In the past, connectivity issues often disturbed the performance of our Elasticsearch cluster. Once we’ve enabled vRack most of our network-related problems were gone. vRack, a private network solution from OVH, allowed us to create a reliable and private connection between our servers, indispensable for stability of our platform.”
