During onboarding from public cloud, the platform will onboard existing public IP addresses in providers that support them, such as AWS and Azure. You can obtain them from the provider and assign them to your virtual datacenters and VMs.

The provider may charge for public IP addresses as soon as you reserve them for your virtual datacenter. Therefore you should reserve your IP addresses just before you deploy and check they are deleted when you undeploy your VMs. Remember that your provider may also limit the number of public IP addresses that you can use per virtual datacenter.


To add public IP addresses to your virtual datacenter, so that you can later assign them to your VMs:

Privileges: Manage virtual network elements, Manage floating IPs, Access public networks tab, Manage public network elements

  1. Go to Virtual datacenters → Select a public cloud virtual datacenter → Network → Public
  2. On the Allocated public IPs page, click the + add button
  3. To add the public IP to a virtual datacenter, click the Add to VDC link near the IP address

Now when you edit a VM in the VDC and go to Network → Public, the platform will display the public IP address and you can add it to your VM.

To obtain a public IP directly for a VM, click Purchase public IPs.




Synchronize public IP addresses with the cloud provider

To onboard any public IP addresses that were already created in your cloud provider, or update changes made directly in the provider:

Privileges: Manage virtual network elements, Manage floating IPs, Access public networks tab, Manage public network elements

  1. Go to Virtual datacenters → select a public cloud virtual datacenter → Network → Public
  2. Click the double arrow synchronize public IPs button (beside the + add button)
