Virtual Data Center LANs

A Virtual Data Center (VDC) is a collection of cloud resources for creating an enterprise-grade IT infrastructure. A Local Area Network (LAN) in a VDC refers to the interconnected network of Virtual Machines (VMs) within a single physical server or cluster of servers. The LAN in a VDC is a critical component of cloud computing infrastructure that enables efficient and secure communication between VMs and other resources within the data center.

VDC operates in a dual-stack mode that is, the Network Interface Cards (NICs) can communicate over IPv4, IPv6, or both. In Data Center Designer (DCD), IPv6 can be enabled for both Private and Public LANs, but on provisioning, only Public IPv6 addresses are allocated to all LANs.
