Before you use the features of ApsaraDB for MyBase, create instances on the hosts in your ApsaraDB for MyBase dedicated cluster. The instances are created on the hosts based on the resource allocation policy that is selected when you create the MyBase for MySQL dedicated cluster.

Prerequisites

Hosts are created in MyBase for MySQL dedicated clusters. For more information, see Create hosts in a MyBase for MySQL dedicated cluster.

Procedure

  1. Log on to the ApsaraDB for MyBase console.
  2. In the upper-left corner of the page, select the region where you want to deploy the dedicated cluster.
  3. In the left-side navigation pane, click Instances. On the page that appears, click Create Instance.
  4. In the panel that appears, configure the following parameters.
    Parameter Description
    Dedicated Clusters Select the dedicated cluster that you want to manage.
    Database Engine The database engine is MySQL and cannot be changed.
    Current Version The version of the database engine that the instance runs.
    Note This version varies based on the deployment method that is selected when you create the MyBase for MySQL dedicated cluster.
    • If the MyBase for MySQL dedicated cluster that you select is deployed by using the High Availability Edition deployment method, you can select MySQL 5.6, MySQL 5.7, or MySQL 8.0.
    • If the MyBase for MySQL dedicated cluster that you select is deployed by using the Basic deployment method, you can select MySQL 5.7 or MySQL 8.0.
    Storage Engine MySQL 8.0 supports the InnoDB storage engine.
    Edition The edition of the instance.
    Note The instance edition varies based on the deployment method that is selected when you create the MyBase for MySQL dedicated cluster.
    • If the MyBase for MySQL dedicated cluster that you select is deployed by using the High Availability Edition deployment method, the instance edition is High-availability Edition.
    • If the MyBase for MySQL dedicated cluster that you select is deployed by using the Basic deployment method, the instance edition is Basic Edition.
    Parameter Template The parameter template of the instance.
    Time Zone The time zone of the instance.
    Table Name Case Sensitivity Specifies whether the names of the tables in the instance are case-sensitive.
    Storage Type The storage type of the instance. You can specify Local SSD or Enhanced SSD (Recommended) as the storage type.
    Note The storage type of the instance varies based on the deployment method that is selected when you create the MyBase for MySQL dedicated cluster.
    • If the MyBase for MySQL dedicated cluster that you select is deployed by using the High Availability Edition deployment method, you can specify Local SSD or Enhanced SSD (Recommended) as the storage type. If you specify Enhanced SSD (Recommended) as the storage type, you can select Disk Encryption to encrypt and secure your data. For more information, see Data encryption.
    • If the MyBase for MySQL dedicated cluster that you select is deployed by using the Basic deployment method, only Enhanced SSD (Recommended) can be selected.
    Storage Capacity The storage capacity of the instance.
    Instance Type The specifications of the instance.
    Deployment Method You can select Default Policy or Specified Host.
    Note
    • If you select Default Policy, the balanced distribution policy is used. In this case, the system preferentially deploys instances on the hosts of which no resources or few resources are consumed.
    • If you select Specified Host, you must select the hosts on which you want to deploy the instance.
      Note
      • If you want to create a High-availability Edition instance, you must specify Primary Host and Secondary Host.
      • If you want to create a Basic Edition instance, you need to specify only Primary Host.
    VPC The virtual private cloud (VPC) to which the host is connected. Select the VPC to which the dedicated cluster is connected.
    Zone The zone where the host is deployed.
    VSwitch The vSwitch to which the host is connected. If no vSwitches are available, click Create VSwitch to create a vSwitch.
    Billing Method You can select Pay-As-You-Go.
    Note If the host on which the instance is deployed uses enhanced SSDs (ESSDs), the fees of the host include only the computing fees. When you create an instance on the host, you must pay for the storage of ESSDs. You can purchase a storage plan to reduce storage costs. A storage plan is billed based on the subscription billing method. A storage plan can be used to offset the storage costs of pay-as-you-go instances that are deployed in the same region as the storage plan.
