Correct ?

What i would like to see it dedicated ethernet connections between servers then there's no latency or anything! I'm guessing the VLAN would be running on the same network as everything else?

Oh! It'a a VLAN! Why didn't Oles call it such from the start, as this makes a lot more sense to most people!? Now it's getting interesting! Thanks Neil

Well, a Virtual Rack or vLan is useful if you run a large web server setup or something similar, where you might have web servers and database servers and you want them to respond internally.

This could mean you have a database server and a backup server that respond only to internal IP's, protecting them from outside attacks and improving performance.

The theory is quite simple really... it's for those who cannot afford a server. It will give the feeling that you do actually have a server

I'm still trying to figure out what this is. I see it as an option under "Services", there's no available server to add to whatever it is and "This one will be automatically added when ordering so your server does not have" is an Olesism that I do not understand. "I confused is very much", frankly.

Good evening,
The 1st "virtual rack" (the virtual bay) have been configured.
Other orders will be executed tomorrow in the day and
gradually throughout the sub will be "virtual rack"-proof. Indeed,
for this service there, we set up an internal network
1Tbps capacity switching ... something huge is there to
ensure excellent service quality because the objective is to
guarantee bandwidth internal network, whatever the
Type your server in the data center regardless of OVH ...

Regards
Octave
no idea what that means.
is it about VPS or Colo?
