Oxide Virtual Private Cloud
Virtualized networking lets you create, organize, and isolate project-specific networks across all your Oxide racks.
Built-in virtual routing
Built-in NAT gateways
Configure full networking capabilities quickly and easily – via API, CLI or console.
IPv4 and IPv6 supported out of the box
Elastic and floating IP address pools for guest VMs
Observability all the way down
on a built-in reliable, high performance network
Our holistic and open design allows you to understand what end-to-end paths exist and how they relate to your operational requirements.
- Open protocols and open implementations
- Comprehensive protocol documentation and operations tooling
- Real-time and historic observability for networking protocols
- Dynamically probe data-plane communications
at a glance
A fault-tolerant underlay network optimizes packet delivery between physical hosts within and across racks. Packets between VM instances are encapsulated onto overlay networks, governed by policies that you define.
Delay Driven Multipath performs underlay routing, measures delay, calculates multipath decisions and helps to avoid congestion.
The Oxide Packet Transformation Engine implements firewall rules, encapsulates packets onto Geneve overlays, implements VPC routing and performs address translation.
P4-based switch management
The built-in switch management platform drives the P4-programmable rack switch from a PCIe connected compute sled. Loads and manages data-plane P4 programs.
Integrates the attached compute sled's network stack with the switch ASIC to support stateful protocols such as NDP and BGP.
- Holistic network design
- Transparency into components
- Optimal distribution of network functions across hardware and software
- Fit-for-purpose design improves efficiency
Oxide’s rack level switch. There are two per rack. 32 ports of QSFP in the front, 32 ports for the cabled backplane in the rear. Connected to compute sleds via PCIe.
Fiber patch panel with a modular approach that adapts to your needs, be it connecting to another Oxide rack or into your network. High throughput with 64 ports of fiber to the switches.
