Create a free cluster
The free cluster provides a fully functioning single node YugabyteDB cluster deployed to the region of your choice. The cluster is free forever and includes enough resources to explore the core features available for developing applications with YugabyteDB. No credit card information is required. You can only have one free cluster.
After setting up your YugabyteDB Managed account, log in to access YugabyteDB Managed. YugabyteDB Managed has the following main sections, accessed via the left menu:
Getting Started - Create your free cluster and access documentation.
Clusters - Add, monitor, and manage clusters.
Alerts - Configure cluster and billing alerts, and view notifications.
Network Access - Set up VPC networks and authorize access to your clusters using IP allow lists.
Admin - Manage billing and payment methods, add users, and review account activity.
Create your free cluster
To create your free cluster:
On the Getting Started page, click Create a free cluster to open the Create Cluster wizard.
Select YugabyteDB Managed Free and click Next.
Choose the cloud provider (AWS or GCP), enter a name for the cluster, and choose the region in which to deploy the cluster, then click Next.
Click Download credentials. The default credentials are for a database user named "admin". You'll use these credentials when connecting to your YugabyteDB database.
Click Create Cluster.
After you complete the wizard, YugabyteDB Managed bootstraps and provisions the cluster, and configures YugabyteDB. The process takes up to 15 minutes.
When the cluster is ready, the cluster Overview is displayed. You now have a fully configured YugabyteDB cluster provisioned in YugabyteDB Managed.
NoteYugabyteDB is a distributed database optimized for deployment across a cluster of servers. The free cluster has a single node and limited resources, suitable for running tutorials, Yugabyte University, and building sample applications. To evaluate YugabyteDB Managed for production use or conduct a proof-of-concept (POC), contact Yugabyte Support for trial credits.
Connect to your cluster using the Cloud Shell.
