CloudBees CD/RO

A zone is a way to partition a collection of agents to secure them from use by other groups—similar to creating multiple top-level networks. For example, you might choose to create a developers zone, a production zone, and a test zone—agents in one zone cannot directly communicate with agents in another zone.

A default zone is created during CloudBees CD/RO installation. The server implicitly belongs to the default zone, which means all agents in this zone can communicate with the server directly (without the use of a gateway).
