Depending on the virtual network configuration, three types of Cloudspaces are suported.
- A Private Cloudspace is a cloud space wherein a VFW has no interface access to the external network. Such a Cloudspace is isolated from the outside world
- A Public Cloudspace is a Cloudspace wherein a VFW has an access to external network
- A Nested cloud space is a Cloudspace wherein the external network interface of the VFW is a part of a virtual private network of another Cloudspace.
The picture below illustrates the networking between the Cloudspaces.
Different types of Cloudspaces enable flexibility to create custom network configurations.
