Request Images to Deploy in GCP

To request access to the GCP images, visit the Virtual Images section in the Exabeam Community. You will need to provide the following information:

  • The name of the member of your organization that will perform the deployment in GCP

  • The business email address of that member of your organization

Your credentials will be added to the Exabeam Google Group to access product images.

Note

Please review all specifications for your platform and ensure you have sufficient resources to deploy Exabeam images. Additionally, please ensure you have valid Exabeam licenses for the product(s) you will implement.

Exabeam Platform Specification Table for Virtual Platforms

These are the minimum operating specifications needed to run your Exabeam product. We do not support hybrid deployments (cross environment deployments). All nodes must be in the same subnet.

Be aware that vCPU is not the same as the number of CPUs or Cores for the processor. A vCPU is typically equal to the number of threads in the processor.

The tables below details the CPU and memory allocation required for Exabeam products to operate optimally, with the following provisioned:

  • The host is not shared with any other product or resource

(* If you have an existing Data Lake deployment of 20 nodes or below, we will continue to support the older sizing for up to i32 only. Please contact the Exabeam Technical Account Manager for your team for any questions. )

For clusters with 21 nodes or more, an additional three management nodes are required for cluster management operations, health monitoring and other critical functions.
