Step 1: Create an AWS Account [One time]

To use ElastiCache, you need an AWS account. If you don't already have one, you'll be prompted to create one when you sign up. You're not charged for any AWS services that you sign up for unless you use them.

To create an AWS account

  1. Open https://aws.amazon.com/, and then choose Create an AWS Account.

    Note

    This might be unavailable in your browser if you previously signed into the AWS Management Console. In that case, choose Sign In to the Console, and then choose Create a new AWS account.

  2. Follow the online instructions.

    Part of the sign-up procedure involves receiving a phone call and entering a PIN using the phone keypad.
