Creating a Dedicated Cloud Cluster on AWS

To create a Redpanda cluster in the Dedicated cloud, log in to the Redpanda Cloud, add a namespace, then follow the steps for creating a Dedicated cluster.

Create a namespace

To prepare to deploy a Dedicated cluster, log in to the Redpanda Cloud UI and add a namespace:

  1. Go to Redpanda Cloud and click Log in.

  2. Type your organization name and click Continue.

  3. Click Add namespace.

    Namespaces help you organize clusters by owner, team, or project for example.

  4. Type a name for your namespace.

Create a Dedicated cluster

Create a dedicated cluster in your namespace by selecting cluster settings, cloud provider settings, and the network connection type:

  1. Scroll to your namespace (namespaces are listed in alphabetical order) and click + Add Cluster.

  2. Click Create Dedicated cluster.

    The Create dedicated cluster page opens at the Cluster settings step.

  3. (Optional) In Cluster name, type a name to replace the default name.

  4. Select throughput.

    The choices are 1 MBps, 5 MBps, 10 MBps, and 20 MBps.

  5. Open the Redpanda version menu and select a version.

  6. Click Next.

    The Cloud settings page opens.

  7. For Provider, select AWS.

  8. Open the Region menu and select a region.

    If you plan to create a private network in your own VPC, select the region where your VPC is located.

  9. Open the Zones menu and select three availability zones for your region.

  10. Click Next.

    The Networking page opens.

  11. Under Connection Type, select either Public Network or Private - VPC Peering.

  12. Click Create.

After the cluster is created, you can click on the cluster name on the Home page to see the Overview page for that cluster.

If you chose Private - VPC Peering for your connection type, see Adding a VPC Peering Connection to connect your VPC to the Redpanda Cloud VPC.
