Create Cloud Data Fusion instance


Creating a Cloud Data Fusion instance in Google Cloud Platform (GCP) enables users to build, deploy, and manage data integration pipelines for extracting, transforming, and loading (ETL) data from various sources into their data warehouses or analytics platforms. Cloud Data Fusion provides a visual interface and a managed service for building ETL pipelines without requiring users to manage infrastructure or write code.

To create a Cloud Data Fusion instance, users can navigate to the Cloud Data Fusion section of the GCP Console and click on the "Create instance" button. From there, users can specify configuration details such as the instance name, location, and version of Cloud Data Fusion. Users can also choose the machine type, network settings, and other advanced options as needed.
