The requirements are the same as those we had in the previous chapter. For your convenience, the Gists are available here as well. Feel free to use them to create a new cluster, or to validate that the one you’re planning to use meets the requirements.

NOTE: In the end, you will see a command to DELETE the cluster too. Don’t execute that command. Use the DELETE command only when you need to delete the cluster, preferably at the end of the chapter.
