Create a Dedicated Cloud Cluster

After you log in to Redpanda Cloud, you land on the Clusters page. This page lists all the clusters in your organization.

Create a Dedicated cluster

  1. On the Clusters page, click Create cluster, then click Create Dedicated cluster.

    Enter a cluster name, then select the resource group, cloud provider (AWS or GCP), region, availability zones, tier, and Redpanda version.

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

    • Three availability zones provide two backups in case one availability zone goes down.

  2. Click Next.

  3. On the Network page, enter the connection type: Public or Private. For private networks:

    • Your network name is used to identify this network.

    • For a CIDR range, choose one that does not overlap with your existing VPCs or your Redpanda network.

      Private networks require a VPC peering connection. See Add a Dedicated VPC Peering Connection to connect your VPC to the Redpanda Cloud VPC.
  4. Click Create.

After the cluster is created, you can click the cluster name on the Clusters page to see the overview for it.
