OVH have launched the vRack to give you the ability to connect several dedicated servers in a private network.
This is useful when you have a cluster of servers with some compute servers and some storage servers.
In the vRack you can use public or private IP for each server and also create VLAN to secure your network.

OVH's vRack is simply a private vLAN that you can use to communicate privately between of your servers which include vRack (Servers with vRack will have two physical network connections, 1x Public & 1x vRack).

On the vRack network interfaces you can assign private IP addresses as you see fit to allow for network communications between your servers (By default the vRack connections do not have any IPs assigned).

That said, you can also add OVH failover/RIPE IP blocks to your vRack via their web control panel allowing you to assign a single block of IPs to multiple servers.

OVH has a lot of decent documentation on their website too.

Yes, that image above is correct. In the simplest of terms its like all your servers being on the same local area connection or LAN. It allows for them to talk to each other locally at extremely high speeds/throughput with the lowest of latency which is very important for setups like server clusters or Webserver + Database server setups.
