There are two types of clusters:
- All-Purpose clusters can be shared by multiple users. These are typically used to run notebooks. All-Purpose clusters remain active until you terminate them.
- Job clusters run a job. You create a job cluster when you create a job. Such clusters are terminated automatically after the job is completed.
This article describes how to create an all-purpose cluster. To learn how to create job clusters, see Create a job.
You can also create a cluster using the Clusters API.
You must have permission to create a cluster. See Configure cluster creation permission.
