    This document describes how to create an instance and deploy a VPC in the CKafka console.



    1. Log in to the CKafka console.
    2. Select Instance List on the left sidebar, click Create to go to the instance purchase page, and enter the purchase information as needed.
      • Billing Mode: Select Monthly subscription or Pay as you go.
      • 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, see Suggestions for CKafka Version 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 two AZs for deployment. For more information on multi-AZ deployment, see Multi-AZ Deployment.
      • Product Specs: Select an appropriate model based on the peak bandwidth and disk capacity.
      • Message Retention Period: The value range is 1–2160 hours.
        When the disk capacity is insufficient (i.e., the disk utilization reaches 90%), old messages will be deleted in advance to ensure the service availability.
      • Instance Name: When purchasing multiple instances, you can use the features of automatically incrementing the instance suffix number and specifying a pattern string. For detailed directions, see Naming with Consecutive Numeric Suffixes or Designated Pattern String.
    3. Select an appropriate VPC according to your business needs.
      If you want to use other VPCs, follow the steps in Adding Routing Policy to modify the routing rules.
    4. Click Buy Now. The created instance will be displayed in the instance list in about 3–5 minutes.
