Public Cloud – Flexible Engine
Elastic IP – securely expose your Virtual Private Cloud to the Internet
Allows a communication between “Virtual private clouds” and the internet
Our elastic public IP addresses are static addresses that can be allocated to cloud servers which need to be exposed to the internet.
A floating IP adress can have 3 states:
- available : in the common pool
- allocated : reserved to a tenant
- attached : attached to a cloud server
The lifecycle of an IP address is independent of that of a cloud server. It is not destroyed when destroying the instance. It can be reused and attached to another instance. So it is a stable public IP for the user.
An IP address can support between 1 MB / s. To 10 Gb / s.
