    Prerequisites

    Directions

    1. Log in to the CKafka console.
    2. Choose Instance List in the left sidebar, click Create to go to the instance purchase page, and enter the purchase information as needed.
      • Billing Mode: monthly subscription
      • Specs Type: select the Standard or Pro edition based on your business needs.
      • Kafka Version: select a Kafka version based on your business needs. For more information, please see Suggestions for CKafka Edition Selection.
      • Region: select a region close to the resource for client deployment.
      • AZ:
        • Standard Edition: does not support multi-AZ deployment.
        • Pro Edition: if the current region supports multi-AZ deployment, you can select up to 2 AZs for deployment. For more information on multi-AZ deployment, please see Multi-AZ Deployment.
      • Product Specification: select a model based on the peak bandwidth and disk capacity.
      • Message Retention: select a value between 24 and 2160 hours.
        When the disk capacity is insufficient (i.e., the disk utilization reaches 90%), previous messages will be deleted in advance to ensure the service availability.
      • Instance name: when purchasing multiple instances, you can batch create instances by its numeric suffix (which is numbered in an ascending order) or its designated pattern string. For detailed directions, please see Naming with Consecutive Numeric Suffixes or Designated Pattern String.
    3. Select the VPC where the CVM resides.
      If you want to use other VPCs, follow the steps in Adding Routing Policy to modify the routing rules.
    4. Click Buy Now. The instance created is displayed in the instance list in about 3-5 minutes.
