Creating a VPC and a Key Pair

Before creating your first cluster, you must create a VPC and a key pair. A VPC provides an isolated, configurable, and manageable virtual network environment for CCE clusters, and a key pair is used for identity authentication during remote node login. Once you have created a VPC and a key pair, you can use them for all clusters you subsequently create.

NOTE:

If you already have a VPC and a key pair, skip the tasks in this section.
