    You have signed up for a Tencent Cloud account as instructed in Signing Up.
    You have created a VPC as instructed in Creating VPC.


    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: Pro instances support monthly subscription and pay-as-you-go billing modes, while Standard instances support monthly subscription only.
    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 Edition Selection.
    Region: Select a region close to the resource for client deployment.
    Standard Edition: This 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 Specification: Select a model based on the peak bandwidth and disk capacity.
    Message Retention Period: Select a value between 1 and 2,160 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 batch create instances by its numeric suffix (which is numbered in an ascending order) or its designated pattern string. For detailed directions, see Naming with Consecutive Numeric Suffixes or Designated Pattern String.
    3. Select an appropriate VPC based on your business needs. If you need to access other VPCs, you can modify the routing access rules as instructed in Adding Routing Policy.
