At any time you can go back to the list of projects by selecting the SQLite Cloud logo in the top left corner of your dashboard.
A project represents a logical name for your database cluster. If you're looking to set up a cluster for your warehouse, then a fitting name could be MyWarehouse or MyCompany. For your flagship mobile app, you might choose MyAwesomeApp. SQLite Cloud dashboard permits you to create and manage multiple projects (clusters) according to your needs.
Each project can be configured independently to suit your specific requirements. For instance, MyAwesomeApp could be a complex, 127-node cluster distributed worldwide, while MyWarehouse could be a simpler 3-node cluster situated near your headquarter in New York.
You're free to add or remove nodes to your cluster at any time.
Create a simple project
For your convenience, we've provided a shortcut to create a simple 3-node cluster (with all the nodes located in the same place) if the dashboard is empty. In this example, let's create a sample project called MyCluster located in Europe, specifically in Amsterdam.
Creating a 3-node cluster may take some time (a few minutes), but you can track the progress of the task in the status area.
Once the task is complete, the Nodes section will display information about your newly created nodes.
Create a more complex project
If you require more control over the type of hardware and node location (e.g., having different nodes in different places), select the Create Project button and fill in the necessary details.
After creating the project, you can add individual nodes to it by selecting the Create Nodes button in the Nodes section:
You can add as many nodes as you need, and the Counter field can be used to add several identical nodes to your project (cluster).
