+## Transfer over ServiceNet
+
+Rackspace Cloud Servers have a private interface, known as ServiceNet, that is unmetered and has double the throughput of the public interface. When transferring files between a Cloud Server and Cloud Files, ServiceNet can be used instead of the public interface.
+
+By default, ServiceNet is not used. To use ServiceNet for the transfer, set the 'servicenet' key to `true` in your client config:
+
+``` js
+ var cloudfiles = require('cloudfiles');
+ var config = {
+ auth : {
+ username: 'your-username',
+ apiKey: 'your-api-key',
+ host : "lon.auth.api.rackspacecloud.com"
+ },
+ servicenet: true
+ };
+
+ var client = cloudfiles.createClient(config);
+```
+
+NOTE: ServiceNet can only be used to transfer files between Cloud Servers and Cloud Files within the same datacenter. Rackspace support can migrate both Cloud Servers and Cloud Files to the same datacenter if needed.
+
## Roadmap
1. Implement Storage Object metadata APIs.
