Create a default VPC for an enterprise

Last Updated: May 21, 2021

A virtual private cloud (VPC) is a private network that is dedicated to you on Alibaba Cloud. If you select VPC as the network type, you can configure the Classless Inter-Domain Routing (CIDR) block, route table, and gateway of your VPC. In your VPC, you can use Alibaba Cloud resources, such as Elastic Compute Service (ECS), ApsaraDB RDS, and Server Load Balancer (SLB) instances. This topic describes how to create a default VPC for an enterprise.

  1. Log on to the VPC console by using your Alibaba Cloud account.

  2. In the top navigation bar, select a region to deploy your VPC.

    Note: The VPC must be in the same region as the cloud resources that you want to deploy.

  3. On the VPCs page, click Create VPC.

  4. In the Create VPC panel, complete the following configurations:

    1. Specify a name for the VPC. Retain the default configurations of the other parameters.

    2. Specify a name and select a zone for the vSwitch. Retain the default configurations of other parameters.

  5. Click OK.
