Creating a Viridian Serverless Cluster

You can create a free cluster for development or production.

Before you Begin

To create more than one cluster, you must add a payment card to your account.

Using the Hazelcast Viridian Console

  • Development cluster

  • Production cluster

To create a development cluster, do the following:

  1. Sign into the Hazelcast Viridian console.

  2. Click Plans in the left navigation.

  3. Click Create cluster in the Serverless tab.

  4. Click Create Development Cluster.

  5. Select a region.

    For best performance, use a region that’s closest to your client application or data stores. The closer your clients and data are to the cluster, the lower the network latency.
  6. Give your cluster a memorable name. You cannot change your cluster name after it has been created.

It takes a few minutes to create a Viridian Serverless cluster. When the cluster state changes from Pending to Running, you can start using it.

To create a production cluster, do the following:

  1. Sign into the Hazelcast Viridian console.

  2. Click Plans in the left navigation.

  3. Click Create cluster in the Serverless tab.

  4. Click Create Production Cluster

  5. Select a region.

    For best performance, use a region that’s closest to your client applications or data stores. The closer your clients and data are to the cluster, the lower the network latency.
  6. Give your cluster a memorable name. You cannot change your cluster name after it has been created.

It takes a few minutes to create a Viridian Serverless cluster. When the cluster state changes from Pending to Running, you can start using it.

Development and production clusters are stopped when both of these conditions are true:

  • You don’t connect to the cluster for 24 hours.

  • You don’t have a payment method set up for your Hazelcast Viridian account.
