About this task

In this task, you will create a Low Priority Data Hub Service (DHS) with a peered DHS network.
Important: For this task, you need the SERV-ADMIN portal role. See Portal Roles.
Note: You can create up to three services per DHS account. To increase the number of services, contact Support.


  1. Go to the MarkLogic Data Hub Service home page, and select Data Hub Service from the menu.
  2. In the Create Data Hub Service page, configure your service.

    Low Priority Data Hub Service with a Peered Network

    Field Description
    Service Type
    • Choose Low Priority if this DHS will be used for development and testing only.
    Name The name of your DHS.
    Version The DHS version of your service, including the Data Hub and MarkLogic Server versions installed in your service.

    Choose a DHS version number to create a service with the latest X.X.x release. For the latest release, see Release Notes.

    Tip: If more than one DHS version is available, hover over each version number to display the Data Hub and MarkLogic Server versions installed with each version.
    Network The name of the preconfigured network to use. The network can be peered or public.
    Note: You must choose a network that is compatible with this version. If none of your networks are compatible with the chosen version, you must create a new network.
    Region The region where your preconfigured network is located. Default: us-west-2. See Supported Regions - AWS .
    • Choose Public if you want to allow public access to your DHS endpoints. You can use any machine that is set up as a peer of the MarkLogic VPC.
    • Choose Private if you want to restrict access to your DHS endpoints. You need a bastion host inside a VPC that can access the MarkLogic VPC. For additional information on the bastion host, see Set Up a Client-Side VPC - AWS.
      Important: For improved security, use a peered network with VPC peering.
    Capacity MarkLogic Data Hub Service capacity is measured in MarkLogic Capacity Units (MCU). One MCU has approximately 1GB of memory with appropriate CPU and network capacity. MarkLogic Data Hub Service is provisioned to provide a baseline level of MCUs that govern the target storage for DHS. See Pricing.
    • In the MCU drop-down menu, select the capacity for your service.
    Important: After you create your service, you cannot change the capacity.
    Note: Low Priority service type is not capable of auto scaling.
