Couchbase on HP Cloud Services

This page covers the instructions of installing a single node Couchbase Server on the HP Cloud Services (HPCS) compute infrastructure.

The steps...

Add a Security Group

Create a new Security Group for demo purposes...

  • Example Name: "couchbase demo".
  • Example Description: "ports opened for remote couchbase access for demos; not for production usage".

Add Rules...

IP Protocol / From Port / To Port / Type / CDIR IPS  / Group / Comments
tcp         / 22        / 22      / IPs  / /       / for ssh
tcp         / 8091      / 8091    / IPs  / /       / for HTTP/REST access
tcp         / 11211     / 11211   / IPs  / /       / for memcached ascii protocol access

Don't forget to 'Save Changes'.

Create a Server

For example...

  • Flavor: "standard.large - 4 cCPU / 8GB RAM / 240 GB HD"
  • Security Group: "couchbase demo" (the Security Group you previously created
  • Install Image: "Linux" / "CentOS 5.8 Server 64-bit ..."

Be patient as the Server launch might take a few minutes.

SSH into the Server

For example, if the Server launched with a public address of, then...

$ ssh -i $YOUR_SSH_KEY root@
