About the OpenShift Dedicated Trial

Updated -

The OpenShift Dedicated Trial allows customers to create a single Red Hat 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 a Customer Cloud Subscription (CCS): the customer's own Amazon Web Services (AWS) or Google Cloud account to provide the infrastructure.

The OpenShift Dedicated Trial cluster also includes Red Hat OpenShift API Management, Red Hat OpenShift Data Science, and Red Hat OpenShift Connectors as optional add-ons from OpenShift Cluster Manager. Red Hat OpenShift API Management provides a unified, streamlined developer experience on Red Hat OpenShift Dedicated (OSD) for building, deploying, and scaling cloud-native, integrated applications. Red Hat OpenShift Data Science provides data scientists and developers a powerful artificial intelligence and machine learning (AI/ML) platform to use for building intelligent applications. Red Hat OpenShift Connectors provides a user-friendly way to quickly build scalable and reliable pipelines for OpenShift Streams for Apache Kafka without writing a single line of code.

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. Refer to Upgrading an OpenShift Dedicated trial cluster to a fully supported cluster and to Red Hat OpenShift Dedicated for additional information.

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