ThoughtSpot can be deployed in your GCP environment by deploying compute (VM) instances in your VPC as well as an underlying persistent storage infrastructure. Currently we support Zonal SSD persistent disk for persistent storage. For more information, see Zonal Persistent SSD disks in Google’s Cloud documentation.
All GCP VMs (nodes) in a ThoughtSpot cluster must be in the same zone (and, therefore, also in the same region). ThoughtSpot does not support deploying VMs (nodes) of the same cluster across zones. For more information, see Regions and Zones in Google’s Cloud documentation.
