How does the YugabyteDB free trial work?

You will have access to the full range of features in YugabyteDB’s fully-managed deployment from the start of your trial. After the trial ends, your paid subscription will begin automatically to ensure uninterrupted service. If you cancel within the first seven days, there will be no charges.

What is the co-managed deployment option?

Our powerful, flexible co-managed deployment option combines the best of self-managed and fully-managed deployments. Also known as the “bring-your-own-cloud” option, our co-managed solution allows you to host your data on your own infrastructure, whether cloud-based or on-premises, while offloading day-to-day database management and operations.

What are the billing options for the fully-managed deployment of YugabyteDB?

Yugabyte offers two billing options:

  • Pay-as-you-go (PAYG) billing, where usage is metered in billing increments of a minute, and you pay for actual usage.
  • Subscription billing, where customers commit to a certain number of vCPUs for a fixed term and are invoiced at the start of the contract.
