Question

Can I access mysql server on another droplet via private ip?

Posted April 29, 2014 6.8k views
Hi, I am creating an app and I will be having a dedicated mysql server. If I access it via public ip, the latency might be high as it will be accessed via internet. Is there a possibility that I can access it from LAN or private ip as the droplet will be within the same region?

Yes,

You can best do this by using the private networking options in some of the data centers, too. However, this is not a requirement.
Thanks, guys. I will search for a tutorial on private networking.
