Question

How are droplets isolated on the network when they share a subnet

I am concerned that broadcasted information may result in information leakage. Can you please explain the technology used to isolate DO droplets from each other.

Your private network in DigitalOcean is a VPC, which is a completely private virtual private network that is only available to your account that you have control over in terms of designating subnets and which resources have access to it.

Private networking is completely segmented on a per account basis and is not overlapped in anyway with any other accounts, thus it is entirely private.
