    What is ENI?

    Elastic Network Interface (ENI) is an elastic network interface bound to CVMs in a VPC, which can be migrated among multiple CVMs. ENI is very useful for configuring management networks and establishing highly reliable network solutions.

    ENI has VPC, availability zone and subnet attributes. You can only bind it to CVMs under the same availability zone. A CVM can be bound with multiple ENIs, and the maximum number allowed varies by CVM specifications.
