How Can I Use A VLAN to Isolate My Database and Kubernetes Cluster.

Linode Staff


I would like to deploy a database, and have only Kubernetes interact with it. I am wanting to know how I would go about this with a VLAN. I. would like to prevent external traffic from accessing my database. I also do not want my Database and Kubernetes traffic going over the internet.

Thank you!

Hello Linode,

Linode's managed databases have an IP whitelisting policy by default therefore your database is secure from people accessing it from the public internet.

Upon checking:
Linode does not provide an internal IP address for databases (Looked at the database creation section)

Linode does not provide an internal IP address for Kubernetes nodes at creation but I am sure you're able to enable it manually by using the linode web UI.
