Virtual Private Cloud

A stable, flexible and secure private network space in the cloud that offers a full range of network solutions

Overview

The Virtual Private Cloud (VPC) helps you build independent network space in Tencent Cloud and allows you to customize network segment classification, IP addresses, and routing policies. You can establish VPN tunnels through the public network/direct connection to connect the private network to other cloud resources, thereby flexibly deploying hybrid clouds.

Benefits

High Availability

Leveraging sophisticated technologies such as network virtualization, linkage redundancy, master/slave gateway and VPC-based cross-availability zone deployment, Tencent Cloud ensures high network availability and comprehensively protects network security and reliability at the linkage, network and ICD levels.

Complete Isolation

Utilizing overlay technology, Tencent Cloud helps you build a completely isolated private network environment with 100% logical isolation of different VPCs, meeting the security isolation needs of your businesses.

Diversified Access

VPC provides you with various ways of network access to connect your local IDC to Tencent Cloud resources, such as Direct Connect and VPN Connections.

High-performance Internet

Tencent Cloud enables ultra high-performance Internet access through NAT Gateway which supports up to 10 million concurrent connections, helping you easily break through bottlenecks with Internet access performance. Additionally, NAT gateways can be used alongside other Tencent Cloud products such as elastic Load Balance and Anycast Internet Acceleration for an improved business access experience.

Multi-dimensional Security

VPC supports multi-dimensional network security control. Resource access control at the port and instance levels can be achieved through network ACLs and security groups, and minimum account permissions can be granted through CAM, helping you achieve comprehensive network security enhancement.

Visual Management

VPC supports visualization of network topology which can monitor network status in real time, set traffic alarms and help you easily manage networks in a comprehensive and intelligent manner together with Flow Logs.

Elastic Scalability

Tencent Cloud supports elastic scaling of VPC, eliminating the need to purchase, install and debug additional network devices, allowing for flexible scaling of network resources as business scale changes and helping with business development.

Optimal Costs

Most functions of VPC are available free of charge, allowing you to enjoy high-standard IDC-grade network resources without the need to purchase additional dedicated network devices. For optimal configurations, Tencent Cloud offers a variety of flexible billing methods and packages.

Service Integration

VPC can be deeply integrated with most Tencent Cloud services such as CVM, CDB and TBDS to provide you with a complete cloud solution.

Features

Software-defined Network

The IP address range, subnet IP address range and routing strategies of VPC can be customized through the Tencent Cloud console or API. VPC can be further divided into multiple subnets for deployment of applications and services. The deployment and OPS of underlying network devices and optimization of network performance are maintained by Tencent Cloud's professional technical team, allowing you to focus on defining instantly available networks with software to build transparent, agile and intelligent networks with ease.
