Creating a VPC

Deployments created in a VPC will be assigned with private IP addresses only, thus you will later also create a VPC Peering connection to your own VPC in order to use the deployment. This section explains how to create a VPC used by your deployment.

To create a VPC, select VPC from the left menu, and then “Create New VPC” in the upper right corner. You will be presented with the following dialog, fill it out and press ‘Submit’.

Field Description
VPC Name
  • Give your VPC a name so you can more easily identify it later.
Cloud Provider
  • Select a Cloud Provider where you want to create the VPC. Supported Cloud Providers are listed in the drop-down.
Cloud Region
  • Select in which Region you want to create the VPC. Ideally, the region is the same as where your applications reside.
IPv4 CIDR Block
  • This selection is very important. In order to create a peering connection later, then this CIDR block must not be the same as your own VPC that you later will peer with.
  • For example, if your VPC where you will be hosting your applications/clients is using the CIDR 192.168.x.x then you must not use any other CIDRs, starting with 10.x.x.x, or 172.16.x.x.
