Virtual Private Cloud Features

Get unparalleled flexibility and control over your virtual infrastructure. Within your dedicated Virtual Private Cloud (VPC), you’re the architect of your Cloud.

You have the power to define your own routers, configure network address spaces for your internal networks, and even establish a VPN connection, all within the secure confines of your project. Whether you need to segment or isolate workloads or build a complex network architecture. It’s your Virtual Private Cloud, your rules!

Centralized Control

Create and separate networks quickly, either by using the CLI, API or the Web Interface. Naturally, your preferred IaaS tool is very likely supported.

Individual Networks

With a high level of isolation and security for your applications and data, a VPC provides everything you need to fit your individual network architecture needs of your organization.

Easy Use Icon

Advanced Networking

Adjust traffic flow with Floating IPs. Create custom firewalling rules. Add members to a Load Balancer. Establish VPN Tunnels or even connect Bare-Metal-Hardware to your virtual network.

Use-Case Scenarios

Multi-Tier Application

Leverage a Virtual Private Cloud (VPC) to deploy a multi-tier application. Create separate subnets within the VPC to host each tier of the application. The web servers reside in a public subnet, while the application and database servers are placed in private subnets.

Security groups and network ACLs are used to control traffic flow between the subnets, ensuring security and separation. Load balancers and auto-scaling groups can be easily integrated within the VPC to enhance application availability and fault tolerance.

Multi-Tenant Cloud Hosting

Offer services to multiple customers, each with distinct requirements, security concerns, and data isolation needs.

Benefit from Virtual Private Cloud (VPC) technology to create isolated environments for each customer within our public cloud infrastructure. Each customer is allocated a dedicated VPC, which serves as a secure, self-contained unit within the shared cloud environment. If needed you can also connect separated networks.

Additionally each VPC gets its own user grants and views to its ressources.

Your VPC – Your Rules

Operating Systems

Users, Roles, NWS-ID

Control which users can access, read or create and delete ressources in your VPC. Furthermore control who gains even more capabilities and can have insights into the contract or bills.

Quotas are limits you can use to prevent system capacity exhaustion and to prevent being charged by mistakenly configured ressources. Quotas are enforced at the VPC level and are granulary broken down to Image, Compute, and Storage.

openstack server create --image 'Ubuntu Jammy 22.04 LTS' \
--flavor s1.medium --network vpcnetwork myinstance


The provided REST-API allows you to create an OpenStack instance. There are also libraries for the most popular programming languages available.

curl -X POST \
    -H "Content-Type: application/json" \
    -H "X-Auth-Token: $TOKEN" \
    -d '{
        "server": {
            "name": "'myinstance'",
            "flavorRef": "'$FLAVOR_ID'",
            "imageRef": "'$IMAGE_ID'",

What does SDN stand for?
SDN is the short term for Software-Defined Networking. SDN separates the control plane  from the data plane, which enables  network administrators to manage their network traffic in a more efficient and effective way.
Is it Possible to only use "SDN & Floating IPs" from NWS?
Yes, it is possible to only pay for the NETWAYS Managed Cloud Feature “SDN and Floating IPs”!
How much does the Feature "SDN and Floating IPs" cost?
Traffic-Accounting is based on samples leaving or reaching our edge network devices. Traffic between Virtual Machines and Availability Zones is free! Floating IPs is charged with a daily price of as little as 0.25 cents – per IP. Find more info on our pricing page.
