We’ve made a new feature – Bring Your Own IP (BYOIP). Now you can register your own provider-independent IPv4 address blocks in CROC Cloud and use it to allocate Elastic IP addresses.
BYOIP can be useful for:
- operating with high reputation IP addresses (for email services);
- simplifying the migration to the Cloud – when there are a lot of access lists containing specific address block;
- problem prevention when government agencies block cloud provider subnetworks;
- support of devices with certain IPs hardcoded in it;
- compliance to different regulations.
The minimum size of IPv4 block is /24, the maximum size is /20. To add the block you should use the ProvisionByoipCidr method. To do this you can use c2-ec2 or AWS CLI (
aws ec2 provision-byoip-cidr --cidr <CIDR>) tool. After adding the block you can use its addresses as the Elastic IPs.
