Aiven offers a free trial for 30 days to explore the platform - including the Aiven Console, API, CLI, Aiven Terraform provider, and Aiven Operator for Kubernetes - and the Aiven services. You don’t need a credit card to sign up.
If you create services on the free plan, they will continue to run alongside your free 30-day trial without affecting your trial credits. Free plan services also continue running after the trial has expired.
Trial features and limitations#
The trial credits can be used for any paid services and plan sizes as well functionality like virtual private cloud peering.
Up to 10 VMs
Up to 10 VPC peering connections
There are some limitations:
You can only have one trial
Trials can only be started in your default project, which is created when you sign up
Trial credits cannot be transferred to another project
You can’t create new services if your remaining credits would be spent too quickly
Add a payment card#
To keep your services running after the trial period, add a payment card. Without a payment card, services are automatically powered down after credits run out, but they can be powered on again after a card is added.
