Internal Network Traffic? VPC?

Posted June 2, 2014 4.9k views
I'm curious about visibility of a uer's internal traffic, is it vlan'd to your own cluster (like a VPC)? Or do neighbors exist therefore requiring SSL for any traffic that should remain private?

Currently individual accounts are not on separate VLANs. You can vote for the feature and follow its progress over on DigitalOcean's UserVoice page:

So depending on the type of traffic, you may want to set up SSL encryption on the private network.

Hi there,

I just came across this question and decided to post a small update here in case that anyone else comes across this in 2020.

I would recommend considering the new DigitalOcean VPC networks.

VPC networks are completely isolated from both other customers and other VPCs on your own account. See here for more details:

https://www.digitalocean.com/docs/networking/vpc/

It’s also worth pointing out that DigitalOcean private networks provided account level isolation since July 18, 2018. The big changes with the release of VPCs are:

  • You can create multiple VPCs that are isolated from each other
  • You can define the IP range for your VPCs yourself
