Alibaba Cloud provides two network types:

  • Classic networks

    Cloud products on a classic network are all deployed in Alibaba Cloud’s public infrastructure and planned and managed by Alibaba Cloud. These products are suitable for customers who have high ease-of-use requirements.

  • VPC networks

    VPC networks are virtual private clouds that allow custom isolation settings. You can define the custom VPC topology and IP addresses. VPCs are suitable for customers with high cybersecurity requirements and network management capabilities.

After purchasing a VPC and synchronizing it to the EDAS console, you can view its information in the EDAS console.

  1. Log on to the EDAS console.

  2. In the left-side navigation pane, choose Resource Management > VPC.
