30-day trials#

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.

Trials include:

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.
