Getting Started

First steps

  1. Create an account

    Navigate to the Aerospike Cloud signup page. You can sign up with either a Google account or with an email address and password.

  2. Create an organization

    Your organization allows you to grant access privileges to other users. The organization name can be 1-100 characters long. Once an organization is created, the name cannot be changed.

  3. Create a database

    Each organization receives a free 14-day trial of Aerospike Cloud. If you want to activate the free trial, you can do that now. If you'd rather go straight to purchasing a service agreement, follow these steps.

    • Click Databases in the left-side navigation.

    • Click Create new.

    • Specify database details.

      • Choose a name for your database. The database name can be 1-100 characters long.

      • Choose a cloud region to host your database.

      • High Availability mode is the only consistency mode currently supported. Support for Strong Consistency mode is coming soon.

      • Click Continue.

    • Configure your database's capacity for storage and transactions per second (TPS). If you need greater capacity than is currently offered, please contact Aerospike Sales. Click Continue when you're ready to proceed to billing.

      The selected capacity determines the monthly base price. Storage and transaction usage is billed based on actual usage at the end of the month.

    • Enter your billing information.


      We currently cannot accept credit cards issued by banks in India. If entered, these cards will be declined.

      Aerospike Cloud is a subscription service and requires support for e-mandates to establish monthly recurring charges in compliance with directives issued by the Reserve Bank of India.

      We are working to add e-mandate support soon so that we can begin accepting credit cards issued by banks in India. Thank you for your patience.

    • Click the Create Database button.

      The new database appears in your list of databases along with its status. New databases take about 10-15 minutes to launch. When the status changes to Running, the database is ready.

  4. Create an API key

    API keys authenticate users for database access.

    • In the Databases panel, select the database for the API key.

    • Select API Keys from the top navigation.

    • Click New API Key.

    • Enter a name for the key and click Generate Key.

    • The new key's secret appears in the dialog box. Copy it and store it in a safe place. If you lose the key secret, there is no way to retrieve it; you must delete the key and generate a new one.
