Deploy a Pulsar cluster

While provisioning and deploying an open-source Pulsar can be tricky, on StreamNative Hosted it is as simple as clicking through a few settings. This video walks developers through connecting a cloud provider (either AWS or Google Cloud), what each setting means, and what settings to use, given the scale of messages a developer will send to Pulsar.
