Create your first network#

Rackspace first introduced networking services that were based on the OpenStack Nova-Network API and exposed these services via the /os-networksv2 Cloud Servers extension.

These examples walk you through the steps to create an isolated network and create a server that is attached your isolated network. The simple exercises show you how to access the Networks extension API through nova client commands or cURL commands so that you can quickly create isolated networks and servers.

The exercises also help you learn how cURL commands and the Networks extension API work.


This version of the network service is now superseded by the current networking API, based on OpenStack Neutron, which offers a richer suite of networking services. To learn more about neutron network operations, see Cloud Networks API reference.
