What is ServiceNet?

ServiceNet is an internal only, multi-tenant network connection within each Rackspace data center. ServiceNet IP addresses are not accessible from the public Internet and are local to each data center.

Note: You can configure your account resources, such as Cloud Servers and Cloud Load Balancers, to utilize a ServiceNet IP address instead of the public IP address. Any traffic that occurs between your cloud resources on the Rackspace Network does not incur bandwidth charges.

If you filter traffic to your servers by using a firewall, the best practice is to allow the subnet range in which your Load Balancer resides. For more information how to filter traffic from a load balancer on your servers, see Using Cloud Load Balancers with RackConnect.
