Is VPC traffic secure?

Hi, I just want to be clear since this is important. Is VPC traffic between servers exposed to other users in the same data center? I know they just rolled out this feature in April and there is a lot of stuff on the web from before then saying that your private network traffic is exposed to other users in the same region. I get the indication that the VPC roll out changed this but I want to be sure. Can anyone offer me caution or reassurance on relying on VPC to secure data that is sent between servers?

Hi there @jacobherman4,

Compared to the old private network, with the new DigitalOcean VPC networks, your resources are completely isolated from both other customers and other VPCs on your own account.
