Create Security Group

Creating additional custom security groups for instances in a cloud service is a fundamental practice in cloud computing that plays a vital role in ensuring the security and control of your resources. Security groups act as virtual firewalls, controlling inbound and outbound traffic to and from your cloud instances. By creating custom security groups, you gain the flexibility to define precise network access rules tailored to your specific application or workload requirements.

In Eranyacloud console, instances are launched with default security groups that provide basic network access controls. However, these default groups may not fully align with your security needs, especially in complex architectures where multiple services and applications interact. Hence, we give a freedom to end user to create their own custom security group..

Getting started

  • Start by login to Eranyacloud console and navigate to Networking > Security Group tab
