Description

Creates a DAX cluster. All nodes in the cluster run the same DAX caching software.

Parameters

-AvailabilityZone <String[]>
The Availability Zones (AZs) in which the cluster nodes will be created. All nodes belonging to the cluster are placed in these Availability Zones. Use this parameter if you want to distribute the nodes across multiple AZs.
Required?False
Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?False
-ClusterName <String>
The cluster identifier. This parameter is stored as a lowercase string.Constraints:
  • A name must contain from 1 to 20 alphanumeric characters or hyphens.
  • The first character must be a letter.
  • A name cannot end with a hyphen or contain two consecutive hyphens.
Required?False
Position?1
Accept pipeline input?True (ByValue, )
-Description <String>
A description of the cluster.
Required?False
Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?False
-Force <SwitchParameter>
This parameter overrides confirmation prompts to force the cmdlet to continue its operation. This parameter should always be used with caution.
Required?False
Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?False
-IamRoleArn <String>
A valid Amazon Resource Name (ARN) that identifies an IAM role. At runtime, DAX will assume this role and use the role's permissions to access DynamoDB on your behalf.
Required?False
Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?False
-NodeType <String>
The compute and memory capacity of the nodes in the cluster.
Required?False
Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?False
-NotificationTopicArn <String>
The Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the Amazon SNS topic to which notifications will be sent.The Amazon SNS topic owner must be same as the DAX cluster owner.
Required?False
Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?False
-ParameterGroupName <String>
The parameter group to be associated with the DAX cluster.
Required?False
Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?True (ByPropertyName)
-PreferredMaintenanceWindow <String>
Specifies the weekly time range during which maintenance on the DAX cluster is performed. It is specified as a range in the format ddd:hh24:mi-ddd:hh24:mi (24H Clock UTC). The minimum maintenance window is a 60 minute period. Valid values for ddd are:
  • sun
  • mon
  • tue
  • wed
  • thu
  • fri
  • sat
Example: sun:05:00-sun:09:00If you don't specify a preferred maintenance window when you create or modify a cache cluster, DAX assigns a 60-minute maintenance window on a randomly selected day of the week.
Required?False
Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?False
-ReplicationFactor <Int32>
The number of nodes in the DAX cluster. A replication factor of 1 will create a single-node cluster, without any read replicas. For additional fault tolerance, you can create a multiple node cluster with one or more read replicas. To do this, set ReplicationFactor to 2 or more.AWS recommends that you have at least two read replicas per cluster.
Required?False
Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?False
-SecurityGroupId <String[]>
A list of security group IDs to be assigned to each node in the DAX cluster. (Each of the security group ID is system-generated.)If this parameter is not specified, DAX assigns the default VPC security group to each node.
Required?False
Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?False
-SubnetGroupName <String>
The name of the subnet group to be used for the replication group.DAX clusters can only run in an Amazon VPC environment. All of the subnets that you specify in a subnet group must exist in the same VPC.
Required?False
Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?True (ByPropertyName)
-Tag <Tag[]>
A set of tags to associate with the DAX cluster.
Required?False
Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?False

Common Credential and Region Parameters

-AccessKey <String>
The AWS access key for the user account. This can be a temporary access key if the corresponding session token is supplied to the -SessionToken parameter.
Required? False
Position? Named
Accept pipeline input? False
-Credential <AWSCredentials>
An AWSCredentials object instance containing access and secret key information, and optionally a token for session-based credentials.
Required? False
Position? Named
Accept pipeline input? False
-ProfileLocation <String>

Used to specify the name and location of the ini-format credential file (shared with the AWS CLI and other AWS SDKs)

If this optional parameter is omitted this cmdlet will search the encrypted credential file used by the AWS SDK for .NET and AWS Toolkit for Visual Studio first. If the profile is not found then the cmdlet will search in the ini-format credential file at the default location: (user's home directory)\.aws\credentials. Note that the encrypted credential file is not supported on all platforms. It will be skipped when searching for profiles on Windows Nano Server, Mac, and Linux platforms.

If this parameter is specified then this cmdlet will only search the ini-format credential file at the location given.

As the current folder can vary in a shell or during script execution it is advised that you use specify a fully qualified path instead of a relative path.

Required? False
Position? Named
Accept pipeline input? False
-ProfileName <String>
The user-defined name of an AWS credentials or SAML-based role profile containing credential information. The profile is expected to be found in the secure credential file shared with the AWS SDK for .NET and AWS Toolkit for Visual Studio. You can also specify the name of a profile stored in the .ini-format credential file used with the AWS CLI and other AWS SDKs.
Required? False
Position? Named
Accept pipeline input? False
-NetworkCredential <PSCredential>
Used with SAML-based authentication when ProfileName references a SAML role profile. Contains the network credentials to be supplied during authentication with the configured identity provider's endpoint. This parameter is not required if the user's default network identity can or should be used during authentication.
Required? False
Position? Named
Accept pipeline input? False
-SecretKey <String>
The AWS secret key for the user account. This can be a temporary secret key if the corresponding session token is supplied to the -SessionToken parameter.
Required? False
Position? Named
Accept pipeline input? False
-SessionToken <String>
The session token if the access and secret keys are temporary session-based credentials.
Required? False
Position? Named
Accept pipeline input? False
-Region <String>
The system name of the AWS region in which the operation should be invoked. For example, us-east-1, eu-west-1 etc.
Required? False
Position? Named
Accept pipeline input? False
-EndpointUrl <String>

The endpoint to make the call against.

Note: This parameter is primarily for internal AWS use and is not required/should not be specified for normal usage. The cmdlets normally determine which endpoint to call based on the region specified to the -Region parameter or set as default in the shell (via Set-DefaultAWSRegion). Only specify this parameter if you must direct the call to a specific custom endpoint.

Required? False
Position? Named
Accept pipeline input? False

Inputs

You can pipe a String object to this cmdlet for the ClusterName parameter.

Outputs

This cmdlet returns a Cluster object. The service call response (type Amazon.DAX.Model.CreateClusterResponse) can also be referenced from properties attached to the cmdlet entry in the $AWSHistory stack.
