About the OpenShift Dedicated Trial

Updated -

The OpenShift Dedicated Trial allows customers to create a single OpenShift Dedicated Trial cluster with up to 40 vCPUs of worker capacity. OpenShift Dedicated Trial clusters are provided without an uptime Service Level Agreement (SLA) and are self-supported. OpenShift Dedicated Trial clusters require you to use your own Amazon Web Services (AWS) or Google Cloud account (Customer Cloud Subscription) to provide the infrastructure.

OpenShift Dedicated Trial clusters, along with all corresponding resources, are automatically deleted after 60 days unless they are upgraded to a fully supported entitlement.

Customers can upgrade their OpenShift Dedicated Trial cluster at any time during the 60-day trial period to fully supported OpenShift Dedicated backed by a 99.95% uptime SLA.

To get started, go to OpenShift Cluster Manager to create your OpenShift Dedicated Trial cluster.
