Chapter 1. Preface

Rackspace Cloud Networks enables you to create isolated networks and provision server instances with Rackspace networks or the isolated networks that you create.

When you create an isolated network, it is associated with your tenant ID, which is also known as your account ID or account number. If you don't know your tenant ID, you can find it by logging in to the Cloud Control Panel and expanding the Account menu in the upper-right corner of the screen. Your tenant ID is shown at the top of the menu, listed as "Account #".

Cloud Networks was originally released using the Cloud Servers the Nova-Network API, whose operations are detailed in Network extension of the Next Generation Cloud Servers Developers Guide. Now Cloud Networks has been released using the Neutron API (see Chapter 5, API operations, which is documented in this guide ). We recommend that you use the Neutron API operations even though the Nova-Network API operations still work. For information that helps you determine which method is better for you, see the section called “Networking: Neutron versus Nova-Network” .
