Using Managed Bare Metal within a vRack

Find out how to use vRack with a Managed Bare Metal solution

Last updated 23rd November 2020


The OVHcloud vRack feature makes it possible to connect different cloud services with each other, within one or more secure private networks (VLANs).

This guide explains how to set this up with a Managed Bare Metal infrastructure.


OVHcloud Control Panel

After your Managed Bare Metal infrastructure is delivered, it will be displayed in the section vRack (under "Bare Metal Cloud" in your OVHcloud Control Panel) and the "datacenter" will be automatically included into a vRack.

Data centre

You can move the "datacenter" of your Managed Bare Metal infrastructure to another vRack by selecting it and clicking on the Move button.

vSphere client

In the vSphere client, you can find vRack-capable VLANs in the Networks section, located in the vrack folder.

By default, OVHcloud delivers an infrastructure with 11 VLANs included (VLAN10 to VLAN20).


You can change their settings or create them again by following this guide.

You can then assign these Distributed Port Groups to the network interfaces of your virtual machines.
