GoGrid has recently released some new features that improve on the customer experience using our private network. Private Network Automation (PNA) is currently available in all our data centers. As of this most recent release, these new features will be exposed if you enable PNA by contacting support:
- All servers will have a private IP assigned upon creation (both virtual and dedicated)
- Any private IPs that are used will be marked as assigned on the portal
- Cloud Storage no longer requires static routes. It is now accessible via your favorite protocol (Samba, SCP, etc.)
The assignment of private IPs happen automatically at the time a new server is deployed. GoGrid has enabled this for all new customers. If you are an existing customer, this is feature IS NOT enabled in data centers where you have servers deployed. You will need to file a support ticket to request this feature. Note that once enabled, this will be active for all new servers only – existing servers will keep their existing settings.
As you can see from the screenshot below, once you create the server, you will have a public IP and a private IP assigned. Note that this feature is enabled for both virtual and dedicated servers.
This is also visible in the Networking tab so that you can monitor private IPs that have been assigned from your block.
