In public networks you can reserve or purchase public IP addresses for your VMs. Reserved IPs may be charged while they are reserved, even if they are not used in VMs. You can also reserve public IPs directly from the Edit VM dialog.

Privilege: Manage public IPs, Access public networks tab, Manage public network elements

To add new public IP addresses to your virtual datacenter:

  1. Click the + Add button on the Public IPs page to display the list of available public IPs
    1. To move between pages, use pagination controls such as arrows and page numbers
    2. To filter your search, enter an IP address or Network name in the Search filter box
  2. Select IP addresses to add them to your virtual datacenter 
  3. Click Add to reserve the IPs

The platform will add the IPs to your VDC

The following screenshot shows two IP addresses selected. 




Obtain public IP addresses in public cloud

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.

Amazon may charge for Elastic 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.


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. Click the Add button  on the Public IPs page
  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.




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 Synchronize public IPs button with two straight arrows on it




Release a reserved public IP address

You can release a public IP if it is not assigned to a VM. To release a public IP, select the IP in the list and click the Delete button. In public cloud, click the link to Remove from VDC and the Delete button.
