We’re excited to announce that the improvements to Private Networks that we shared on December 12, 2017 will be released to production between July 10 and July 18, 2018 for all regions! This network upgrade improves your application security by isolating communications between any of the Droplets in your account that have a private IP address.
This release is part of a series of new capabilities we are developing as part of our new Virtual Private Cloud (VPC) feature. We will be adding new VPC capabilities including the definition of multiple private networks using customized IP ranges and routing traffic across private networks.
