The vRack or virtual rack allows multiple servers to be grouped together (regardless of
number and physical location in our datacentre) and connects them to a virtual switch within the same private network.
Your servers can communicate privately and securely between each other (within a dedicated VLAN.
You no longer need to worry about renting racks in a datacentre.
You can get all the servers and switches you need delivered and installed, with guaranteed hardware maintenance.
Your servers communicate securely within your private network (VLAN). You can choose to make your servers
solely accessible via your private network and/or via the public network. Your private network is physically
managed by us, so no software applications or network configuration are required on your servers.
The Cisco ASR 9000 devices serve as a bridge for the vRack. They are at the gateway to each datacentre and
linked to each other in order to route the data without passing through the public network. The Nexus 6000s
and Nexus 2000s act as network gateways to interconnect your different servers.

Public IP routing
Allocate an IP block to a VLAN to make some of the servers or virtual machines in your infrastructure public.
Load Balancing IPs
Easily balance the load between the different services of your VLAN within the vRack.
Dedicated Connect enables you to directly link your business network to our datacentres via the available PoPs.
