VPC network and subnet

When registering a GCP environment in CDP, you must provide an existing VPC network. CDP will not create a VPC network for you.

The VPC must fulfill the following requirements:

  • The VPC network must have one or more subnets in a single geographic region. All the subnets used for environment creation must be in the same geographic region.
  • Your VPC should reside in the same region as the buckets used for storage and logs. This allows you to avoid latency and additional data transfer costs.
  • A shared VPC can be used.
  • If you would like to use a shared VPC, the VPC from the host project needs to be attached to the newly created project.
  • When creating a VPC and subnets, there is an option to create subnets in a custom or automatic mode. Cloudera recommends using the custom mode.
