Before the Velostrata solution can be deployed, a GCP account and a GCP project are required as well as a set up including a GCP Virtual Private Cloud (VPC) with VPN connectivity to the corporate datacenter (on-premises).

Inside the VPC, subnets should be created to meet corporate needs. Specifically, for the subnets into which the Velostrata Cloud Edge components are to be deployed. Internet outbound connectivity is enabled by default for VPC subnets. This enables the Velostrata Cloud Edge nodes to access the Velostrata Telemetry Service.
