Private networking

Private networking isolates communication at the account or team level between Droplets located in the same data center. It also enables Droplets to "talk" with other Droplets in the same data center. Traffic sent between Droplets across the private network will not count toward the bandwidth costs and can be used for database replication, file storage, and similar host-to-host communication.
