Get started with Aiven for Apache Cassandra®#

The first step in using Aiven for Apache Cassandra® is to create a service. You can do so either using the Aiven Web Console or the Aiven CLI.

Create an Aiven for Apache Cassandra® service using the Aiven web console#

  1. Log in to the Aiven web console.

  2. Follow these instructions to create a new Cassandra® service.

    Once the service is ready, the status changes to Running. This typically takes a couple of minutes, depending on your selected cloud provider and region.

Create an Aiven for Apache Cassandra® service using the Aiven CLI#

If you prefer launching a new service from the CLI, Aiven CLI includes a command for doing so.

In order to launch a service, decide on the service plan, cloud provider, and region you want to run your service on. Then run the following command to create a Cassandra® service named demo-cassandra:

avn service create demo-cassandra       \
   --service-type cassandra             \
   --cloud CLOUD_AND_REGION             \
   --plan PLAN                          \
   --project PROJECT_NAME

Note

See the full list of default flags using the avn service create -h command. Additionally, there are some type-specific options, which you can see executing the avn service types -v command.
