Last updated: 2023-04-20 11:36:03


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


    You have signed up for a Tencent Cloud account as instructed in Signing Up.
    You have created a VPC. For more information, see 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 Edition instances support both monthly subscription and pay-as-you-go, and Standard Edition instances support monthly subscription only.
    Specs Type: CKafka instances are divided into Standard Edition and Pro Edition based on their specifications. For the comparison between the two editions, see Product Specifications.
    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.
    Availability Zone:
    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 2 AZs for deployment. For more information on cross-AZ deployment, please see Cross-AZ Deployment.
    Product Specs: Select a model based on the peak bandwidth and disk capacity.
    Message Retention Period: The value range is 24 hours (default) to 2,160 hours. Expired messages will be deleted to free up disk space. 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.
    VPC: Select an appropriate VPC according to your business needs.
    Public Network Bandwidth: A Standard Edition or Pro Edition instance offers 1 or 3 Mbps public network bandwidth free of charge by default, respectively. If needed, you can pay to upgrade the public network bandwidth for your Pro Edition instance. For more information, see Public Network Bandwidth Management.
    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. Click Buy Now. The created instance will be displayed in the instance list in about 3–5 minutes.
