Private and Secure Networks with Linode VLAN
Create a private Layer 2 network for secure communication between your Linodes.
Secure Networking with Linode VLAN
Increase cloud infrastructure security and streamline broadcast traffic with a free VLAN service from Linode.
Configure your Linodes with private and/or public Network Interfaces to control which of your workloads has access to public and private networks. Securely transmit sensitive data across your private VLAN.
Flexible, Easy Setup
Customize your private network to suit your use case. Create up to 10 Private VLANs per data center, and apply up to 3 VLANs to a single Linode. Assign your preferred private network IP range to your VLAN.
Streamline how your data is transmitted by segmenting traffic into smaller dedicated “lanes”, or multiple broadcast domains, to reduce broadcast traffic and application latency.
Reduce Network Transfer Costs
Private Network transfer is free. This means that communication over a VLAN does not count against a Linode’s monthly network transfer quota.
Creating a Private VLAN
Create your L2 private network with Linode resources running in the same data center.
The Process Is Simple:
- Create Your Linodes
- Configure Your VLAN
- Attach VLAN(s) to additional Linodes
