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.
A variety of resources can be created in a VPC network, but not all of them can be migrated between networks. The table below lists the types of resources that can be created inside of a VPC network and which existing resources can be migrated between networks.

|Managed databases||Creation supported.||Native migration supported.|
