A virtual LAN (Local Area Network) is a logical subnetwork that groups together devices from different physical LANs without having to run new cables or make changes in current infrastructure. VLANs are often set up to re-partition a network for better traffic management.

ThinkAgile CP offers stack-specific, bridged networks based on VLAN tagging for use by application instances. Infrastructure admin users can create VLAN-tagged, bridged networks, each tied to a specific stack. When an application instance uses these VLAN networks, traffic from those instances is tagged with the VLAN ID.
