Creating a new Cluster in EDB Big animal

Following article mainly focuses on how to create an EDB cluster.


I assume that you have already created an account in EDB. When creating an account you receive 300 free credits that you can use for performing some of the operations. Remember these are free credits, use them wisely because once they are finished you will have to enter your credit card to get more credits.

Creating a cluster in EDB:

Follow below steps to create a cluster in EDB, Incase if you follow any error feel free to ask in the comment section.

  • Sign in to the BigAnimal portal either using your EDB account or BigAnimal account. I personally have used my EDB account to get started with BigAnimal.

  • On the home page select the overview tab on the left side.
    Left Tab

  • Now click on Create New Cluster option.
