Private Network means other systems in data centre are still accessible

Posted March 17, 2015 1.1k views


In Digital Ocean’s private network, when I have 2 droplets would only these two be accessible inside this network or all the systems within the data centre could still access my both systems and Private only means - not public but still available within the data centre.

The private network option allows communication between droplets in the same data center without counting towards your bandwidth limits. This is a shared private network and your droplets are addressable by other droplets in the same region so you should take steps to ensure security of any traffic you pass over the private network interface.
