Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Free Tier

Oracle Cloud Infrastructure's Free Tier includes a free time-limited promotional trial that allows you to explore a wide range of Oracle Cloud Infrastructure products, and a set of Always Free offers that never expire.

Free Trial

The Free Trial provides you with $300 of cloud credits that are valid for up to 30 days. You may spend these credits on any eligible Oracle Cloud Infrastructure service.

Getting Started

Start for Free

For more information, and to see a complete list of services available to you during the trial, visit the Free Trial website.


During sign up, choose your home region carefully. You can provision Always Free Autonomous Databases and compute instances only in your home region.

For security purposes, most users will need a mobile phone number and a credit card to create an account. Your credit card will not be charged unless you upgrade your account.

When Your Trial Period Ends

After your trial ends, your account remains active. There is no interruption to the availability of the Always Free Resources you have provisioned. You can terminate and re-provision Always Free resources as needed.

Paid resources that were provisioned with your credits during your free trial are reclaimed by Oracle unless you upgrade your account.

Pay as You Go accounts are available with no commitment, or contact an Oracle sales representative in your location to learn about monthly and annual flex accounts that offers discounted pricing. For more information, see Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Pricing.

Upgrading to a Paid Account

You can upgrade to a paid account at any time through the Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Console. To do so, click the Upgrade link in the banner at the top of the Console web page. If you don't see an Upgrade link on the page you are viewing, you can click the Oracle Cloud logo at the top of the Console and then look for the Upgrade link in the sidebar on the right side of the Console home page. You will continue to have access to all of your cloud resources after upgrading your account.
