This guide takes you step-by-step through how to get your ScyllaDB Cloud cluster up and running quickly.
Go to cloud.scylladb.com and log in to your account, or sign up to create a new user account.
Create a new cluster. You can choose one of the following options:
Serverless - ScyllaDB database running on Kubernetes. See Serverless for more information.
Dedicated cluster - ScyllaDB database running on dedicated VMs.
Configure your cluster parameters:
Specify the cluster name and choose your deployment region.
Choose AWS or GCP as your cloud provider. The ScyllaDB Cloud wizard will automatically update the list of geographic regions where you can deploy your cluster and instance types, providing the estimated cost of cloud computing resources.
If you’re creating a dedicated cluster, you need to:
Specify the instance types and the size of your cluster. ScyllaDB Cloud will automatically provision your cluster across multiple availability zones to ensure your cluster’s high availability. You can use our capacity planning calculator to help you properly size your cluster.
Whitelist IP addresses that will be able to communicate with your cluster on ScyllaDB Cloud to ensure the security of your data.
(Recommended) Enable the Enable VPC Peering option to avoid routing your traffic over the open internet and ensure that your cluster and the application layer connect via a private network. Enabling this option will allow you to set up VPC peering after you launch the cluster.
You must enable this option when creating your cluster to be able to configure VPC peering. VPC peering cannot be enabled for an existing cluster.
Click Launch Cluster. It will take a few minutes for your cluster to launch.
If you enabled the VPC peering when configuring your cluster, now VPC peering needs to be configured. The wizard will guide you through the configuration process. See AWS or GCP Virtual Private Network (VPC) Peering Setup Guide for details about configuring VPC peering.
When your cluster is launched, you can immediately connect to it. ScyllaDB Cloud provides you with default credentials and detailed instructions on how to connect to your cluster with different clients and drivers.
Go to My Clusters and open your cluster’s view.
Open the Connect tab.
Choose how you want to connect with your cluster. The Connect tab includes instructions on how to connect using the CQL shell command (Cqlsh) or Scylla CQL drivers.
Follow the instructions specified on the tab you selected.
