Routers provide L3 services such as routing and Source Network Address Translation (SNAT) between Virtual Private Cloud (VPC) network and public (WAN) networks, or different Virtual Private Cloud (VPC) networks:

  • A Router between Virtual Private Cloud (VPC) network and public network provides access to public networks, such as the Internet, for VMs connected to this virtual network.

  • A virtual router between different Virtual Private Cloud (VPC) networks provides communication for VMs connected to these Virtual Private Cloud (VPC) networks.

With virtual routers, you can do the following:

  • Create virtual routers

  • Change external or internal router interfaces

  • Create, edit, and delete static routes

  • Change a router name

  • Delete a router
