A Virtual Private Cloud (VPC) is a private network interface for collections of DigitalOcean resources. VPC networks provide a more secure connection between resources because the network is inaccessible from the public internet and other VPC networks. Traffic within a VPC network doesn’t count against bandwidth usage.
You can now change the default VPC network for a region. When you change the default VPC network for a region, the new default network will be automatically selected during applicable resource set ups unless otherwise specified.
All Droplets created after 1 October 2020 are placed into a VPC network by default. You can no longer manually enable VPC networking on existing Droplets. You can migrate existing Droplets into VPC networks using Snapshots.
The SFO3 datacenter region is now available.
