Azure Pricing on Oasis

Azure will have a similarly low prices to get started with as ArangoDB Oasis on Google Cloud or AWS. You can get started with as little as $0,27/hour for a 3 node, highly available OneShard setup with 4GB memory and 10GB storage per node.

Please see detailed prices for various setups on the pricing page within Oasis.

Limitations within the Public Preview

Until we can declare Azure on Oasis production-ready, there is still one thing to be fixed. Currently, it is not possible to change the disk size after a deployment has been created. This is something which we want to fix within the next couple of weeks. In case you have an account of type “professional”, you can use a slider to configure the disk size. We also recommend that you only choose well-known values for the disk size.

You can get started with Oasis easily and for free. Just sign-up for Oasis and create your first deployment with just a few clicks. The first 14 days are on the house. No credit card needed. Test-run ends automatically after 14 days of use.
