Virtual Server FAQ

What are security groups?

With security groups, you can enact a set of IP filter rules that define how to handle incoming and outgoing traffic to both the public and private interfaces of a virtual server instance. A security group creates a sort of virtual firewall.

For more information about the security groups feature, see Getting started with security groups in Bluemix Docs.

Can I use a Red Hat Cloud Access subscription to create a virtual server?

Yes. When you import an image, you can specify that you will provide the operating system license. For more information, see Use Red Hat Cloud Access . Then you can order a virtual server from that image template and use your existing Red Hat Cloud Access subscription.
