I use it on our backup network. Usually servers that are in different networks share a common backup network. You don't want the servers talking to each other over their backup NIC so you put them in private LANs so they can only communicate with the backup server.

As vman1976nj said the same can be used in datacenter where you have colocated servers from diffrent clients.
