This document describes how to create a CVM instance by using the custom configuration mode as an example.
Before creating a CVM instance, you need to complete the following steps:
|Network||Required||A logically isolated network space built in Tencent Cloud. A virtual private cloud (VPC) includes at least one subnet. The system provides a default VPC and subnet for each region.|
If the existing VPC or subnet does not meet your requirements, you can create a VPC or subnet on the VPC console.
|Instance||Required||Tencent Cloud provides different instance types with different underlying hardware. |
For more information, see Instance Types.
|Image||Required||Tencent Cloud provides public images, custom images, and shared images. See Image Overview.|
|System Disk||Required||Used to install the operating system. Its default capacity is 50 GB.|
Available Cloud Block Storage (CBS) types vary with regions.
See Cloud Disk Types.
|Data Disk||Optional||Purchase data disks if you need more storage capacity. |
See Cloud Disk Types.
|Scheduled Snapshot||Optional||Set a scheduled snapshot policy for the system disk or data disk. See Scheduled Snapshots.|
|Public Network Bandwidth||Required||By default, a public IP will be assigned for free.|
Tencent Cloud provides two network billing modes.
|Quantity||Required||Number of CVM instances to be purchased.|
|Duration||Required||It indicates the usage duration of a CVM instance.|
Click Next: Complete Configuration to enter the CVM configuration page.
Configure the following information as prompted by the page:
|Project||Required||The default project is selected. You can select an existing project as needed to manage different CVM instances.|
|Tag||Optional||You can add tags for the instance as needed, which are used to categorize, search for, and aggregate cloud resources. For more information, see Overview.|
|Instance Name||Optional||You can customize the name of the CVM instance to be created.|
|Login Methods||Required||Configure the method to log in to the CVM instance as needed.|
|Instance Termination Protection||No||It is disabled by default. You can enable it as needed. Then, you cannot terminate an instance in the console or via the API. For more information, see Enabling Instance Termination Protection.|
|Security Reinforcement||Optional||By default, Anti-DDoS and Cloud Workload Protection are enabled for free to help you build a CVM security system to prevent data leakage.|
|Cloud Monitoring||Optional||By default, cloud monitoring is enabled for free. You can install components to obtain CVM monitoring metrics and display them in visual charts. You can also specify custom alarm thresholds. In addition, you can configure three-dimensional CVM data monitoring, intelligent data analysis, real-time fault alarms, and custom data reports to precisely monitor the health conditions of Tencent Cloud services and CVM.|
|Automation Assistant||Optional||It is enabled for free by default. As the native Ops and deployment tool of CVM, it can automatically run shell commands in batches and complete various tasks such as running automated Ops scripts, polling processes, installing/uninstalling software, updating applications, and installing patches, without the need to connect to the instance remotely.|
|Advanced Settings||Optional||Configure additional settings for the instance as needed.|
Click Next: Confirm Configuration to enter the configuration information confirmation page.
