Removing Networks from a Cloud Server


Cloud Networks lets you attach an isolated network to new next generation Cloud Servers (or to existing servers via the Cloud Networks API). You can choose to attach or remove the following networks to or from a Cloud Server:

PublicNet

Provides access to the Internet, Rackspace services such as Cloud Monitoring, Managed Cloud Service Level support, RackConnect, and Cloud Backup, and certain operating system updates.

ServiceNet

Provides access to Rackspace services such as Cloud Files, Cloud Databases, Cloud Backup, and certain packages and patches through an internal only, multi-tenant network connection within each Rackspace data center.

Isolated

Provides a virtual Layer 2 network that keeps your server separate from PublicNet, ServiceNet, or both.

Limitations

If you remove your Cloud Server from PublicNet, it no longer has access to the Internet and some Rackspace products and services. If you remove ServiceNet from your Cloud Server, it cannot access certain Rackspace products and services. The graphic below depicts the services that are not available when these networks are removed from a Cloud Server:
