Now that you have signed up for Amazon ElastiCache, you're ready to create a cache cluster using the AWS Management Console.
The cache cluster you're about to launch will be live (and not running in a sandbox). You will incur the standard Amazon ElastiCache usage fees for the instance until you delete it. The total charges will be minimal (typically less than a dollar) if you complete the exercise described here in one sitting and delete your cache cluster when you are finished. For more information about Amazon ElastiCache usage rates, go to the Amazon ElastiCache product page.
To create a cache cluster in an Amazon Virtual Private Cloud (VPC), go to Using Amazon ElastiCache with Amazon Virtual Private Cloud (VPC) in the Amazon ElastiCache User Guide.
To launch a cache cluster
Start the launch wizard:
Sign in to the AWS Management Console and open the Amazon ElastiCache console at https://console.aws.amazon.com/elasticache/.
From the Amazon ElastiCache Console Dashboard, click Launch Cache Cluster to start the Launch Cache Cluster Wizard.
The wizard opens on the Cache Cluster Details page.
Specify the name of your cache cluster by typing it into the Name text box.
Select the amount of memory you want for each cache node in your cache cluster by selecting a node type from the Node Type drop-down list box.
Select the number of cache nodes you want in your cache cluster by typing a number into the Number of Nodes text box.
You can change the default port that your cache nodes will use to accept connections by typing it into the Cache Port text box.
Leave the rest of the options on the Cache Cluster Details page at their default values, and click the Continue button.
After you click the Continue button, the Additional Configuration page opens.
The Additional Configuration page is where you can specify a cache security group, cache parameter group, and maintenance window for your cache cluster. For this example, accept the default values, and then click the Continue button.
After you click the Continue button, the Review panel appears.
Review the options for your cache cluster:
If you need to correct any options, click the Back button to return to previous panels and make corrections.
If all your options are entered correctly, click the Launch button to launch your new cache cluster.
After you click the Launch button, a message displays stating that your cache cluster is being created.
This can take a few minutes to complete.
Click the Close button.
After you click the Close button, the My Cache Clusters panel appears. Your cache cluster appears in the list on this page with the creating status until your cache cluster is created and ready for use.
Once your cache cluster changes to the available state, you need to authorize access so you can connect to it. Click the following button.
