Google Cloud Platform Installation Overview

Note: Google Cloud Platform is supported from version 11.4 and later.

Google Cloud Platform (GCP) instances have the same functionality as the RSA NetWitness Platform hardware and virtual hosts. RSA recommends that you perform the following tasks when you set up your GCP environment.

Before you can deploy RSA NetWitness Platform in GCP, you need to:

  • Review the recommended compute and memory specifications needed for each RSA NetWitness Platform instance.

  • Get familiar with the RSA NetWitness Platform Storage Guide to understand the types of drives and volumes needed to support NetWitness instances. For more information, see Storage Guide for RSA NetWitness® Platform 11.x.
  • Make sure that you have a NetWitness Platform Throughput license.
