  2. Click + Create database. The database creation wizard displays.

  3. Complete the following steps in the wizard:

    • Choose a region, which is the geographical location in which your database will be created.
    • Select a default engine version from the drop-down menu.
    • Configure your database autoscaling. Your database will scale within the defined range to match the incoming load.

      Define a minimum of 1 vCPU or more to avoid cold starts that can take a few seconds.

    • Enter a name for your database, or keep the randomly-generated name. The name must only contain alphanumeric characters and dashes.
