Creating a Redis Enterprise VPC (RV) Cloud Account

What is a Cloud Account?

A RV Cloud Account contains all necessary credentials and information for an account with your cloud provider. This Cloud Account enables RV to create, manage, and monitor Cloud resources automatically on your behalf.

Once a Cloud Account is set up you can reuse it with several subscriptions.
