create-postgresql

Click “Next” and choose “Production” or “Dev/Test” based on your use-case.

Choose an instance for the RDS database

create-postgresql

Scroll down and setup the credentials. Keep note of the credentials (master username and password, database name etc.), which will be required later.

VPC and security group

Choose a VPC and security group, If you are going to deploy Polyaxon on AWS, then make sure the VPC used here is same as the VPC used with your EC2/ECS instances.

N.B: If you are planning to deploy Polyaxon outside AWS (e.g. On-prem, Polyaxon tracking on Heroku), then you have to make this DB instance publicly accessible.

N.B: Make sure, the security group you choose has appropriate rules for inbound connections from wherever you deploy the Polyaxon.
