Creating your cluster

Once you have met the prerequisites, you are ready to create a managed and secured Flow Management cluster in CDP Public Cloud by using one of the prescriptive flow management cluster definitions. For this, you must select the cluster definition that matches your cloud provider for the environment and further choose from the light and heavy duty options available.

  1. Log into the CDP web interface.
  2. Navigate to Management Console > Environments, and select the environment where you would like to create a cluster.
  3. Click Create Data Hub.
    The Provision Data Hub page is displayed:
  4. Select Cluster Definition.
  5. Select the appropriate Flow Management cluster definition from the Cluster Definition dropdown depending on your operational objectives.

    There are six template options available:

    • Flow Management Light Duty for AWS

    • Flow Management Heavy Duty for AWS

    • Flow Management Light Duty for Azure

    • Flow Management Heavy Duty for Azure

    • Flow Management Light Duty for GCP

    • Flow Management Heavy Duty for GCP

    For more information on templates, see Flow Management cluster definitions and Flow Management cluster layout.

    The list of services is automatically shown below the selected cluster definition name.

  6. Give the cluster a name and add any tags you might need.
    You can define tags that will be applied to your cluster-related resources on your cloud provider account. For more information about tags, see Tags.
  7. Use the Configure Advanced Options section to customize the infrastructure settings.
  8. Click Provision Cluster.
You will be redirected to the Data Hub cluster dashboard, and a new tile representing your cluster will appear at the top of the page.
After you have created your Flow Managament Data Hub cluster, you are ready to build your first data flow in CDP Public Cloud.
