Create a cluster

This page shows you how to use the Qdrant Cloud Console to create a custom Qdrant Cloud cluster.

Prerequisite: Please make sure you have provided billing information before creating a custom cluster.

  1. Start in the Clusters section of the Cloud Dashboard.

  2. Select Clusters and then click + Create.

  3. In the Create a cluster screen select Free or Standard For more information on a free cluster, see the Cloud quickstart. The remaining steps assume you want a standard cluster.

  4. Select a provider. Currently, you can deploy to:

    • Amazon Web Services (AWS)
    • Google Cloud Platform (GCP)
    • Microsoft Azure
  5. Choose your data center region. If you have latency concerns or other topology-related requirements, let us know.

  6. Configure RAM for each node (2 GB to 64 GB).

    For more information, see our Capacity and Sizing guidance. If you need more capacity per node, let us know.

  7. Choose the number of vCPUs per node (0.5 core to 16 cores). If you add more RAM, the menu provides different options for vCPUs.

  8. Select the number of nodes you want the cluster to be deployed on.

    Each node is automatically attached with a disk space offering enough space for your data if you decide to put the metadata or even the index on the disk storage.

  9. Select the disk space for your deployment. You can choose from 8 GB to 2 TB.

  10. Review your cluster configuration and pricing.

  11. When you’re ready, select Create. It takes some time to provision your cluster.

Once provisioned, you can access your cluster on ports 443 and 6333 (REST) and 6334 (gRPC).
