To provision a new product, open your Portal's Products tab and click Add Product.
The New Product wizard will open, and walk you through four simple stages:
1. New Product: Plan
Use the Plan page to choose your product's cloud provider, region and tier.
Choose your cloud host. It can currently be one of two providers: Amazon AWS and Microsoft Azure.
Select where your equipment would be physically located.
You can currently locate Free Instances only in the US East (N. Virginia) - us-east-1 region.
You can raise a Free node,
a Development node or a

2. New Product: Billing
Enter your billing details and click Next,
or click Later to evaluate the cloud service using a basic free product.
3. New Product: Customize
Choose your product's display name and allowed IP addresses.
- The display name is simply the name by which this product would appear in your Products tab.
The Allowed IPs selection is important.
It determines which addresses would be allowed to manage your database, adding an important layer to your database security.
You can set it to
0.0.0.0/0, which would allow access from any location, or you can specify certain IPs or IP ranges.
Be aware that you will not be able to access your instance from locations that are not specified in the allowed IPs list.
You can edit the list at any time through the Portal.
Regardless of the allowed IPs setting, your RavenDB Cloud instances will always require authentication using X509
certificates for access. The allowed IPs list limits service as an additional layer of security, but isn't the only one.
Azure products do not permit overlapping of addresses in the Allowed IPs list.
If addresses in your list overlap, your product will not be created. E.g. -
- Listing both 188.8.131.52/32 and 184.108.40.206/32 is not permitted.
- Listing 0.0.0.0/0 and any other address is not permitted.
- Listing both 220.127.116.11/27 and 18.104.22.168/32 is permitted.
4. New Product: Summary
The Summary stage shows you your choices and lets you edit them if you wish.
When you finish defining your product, the cloud provisioning routine will show you
your new product's status until it's ready to go.
