Elastic IP Video

Elastic IP (EIP) provides independent public IP addresses. EIPs can be flexibly bound to or unbound from Elastic Cloud Servers (ECSs), Bare Metal Servers (BMSs), virtual IP addresses, or Elastic Load Balancers (ELBs).

Flexibility

An EIP can be flexibly associated with or disassociated from an ECS, BMS, or load balancer. The bandwidth can be adjusted according to service changes.

Various EIP Types

EIPs are classified into different types to differentiate the egresses of different carrier networks or external networks. When applying for an EIP, select the type that best meets your requirements.

Limited Bandwidth

EIP bandwidth can be configured to a particular value.

Instant Availability

EIP association, disassociation, and bandwidth adjustment take effect immediately.

Application Scenarios

  • Internet Egress

Internet Egress

Internet Egress

EIPs serve as egress filters for cloud resources to access the Internet and can be flexibly associated with or disassociated from various resources to meet service requirements.

Advantages

  • Flexible

    An EIP can be flexibly associated with or disassociated from an ECS, BMS, NAT gateway, load balancer, or virtual IP address.

Functions

Elasticity

EIPs can be dynamically associated with other resources.

  • Independent public IP addresses

    EIPs are independent public IP addresses that do not belong to any cloud resource.

  • Flexible association with other resources

    An EIP can be flexibly associated with or disassociated from an ECS, BMS, NAT gateway, load balancer, or virtual IP address.

Bandwidth Limit

The EIP bandwidth can be limited as required.

  • Flexible bandwidth settings

    The bandwidth size can be adjusted flexibly, and the configuration takes effect immediately.

Pay-per-use and Simplified Operations

Pay-per-use is provided and the configuration takes effect immediately. Easy management is supported.

  • Billing policy

    EIPs can be purchased on demand. The configuration takes effect immediately.

  • Easy use

    You can use the UI or automatic API calling to manage EIPs.
