Details about the trial
Each organization will have access to a single, self-supported OpenShift Dedicated Trial cluster with up to 40 vCPU of worker capacity. Trial clusters will be self-supported with help from your local account team. Although there are no OpenShift Dedicated subscription fees for the trial, OpenShift Dedicated Trial clusters require you to use your own AWS or Google Cloud account (Customer Cloud Subscription) to provide the infrastructure and pay for cloud expenses incurred during the trial.
The 60-day trial period starts automatically when you create your OpenShift Dedicated Trial cluster. Trial clusters can be upgraded at any time to a fully supported OpenShift Dedicated cluster backed by a 99.95% uptime SLA and 24x7 SRE support. Clusters can be upgraded by using available quota, contacting sales, or through Red Hat Marketplace. As an added benefit, customers have the option to try Red Hat OpenShift API Management as an add-on to OpenShift Dedicated during the trial.
