Description of the illustration OracleCloudSubscription_decision_tree.png

This graphic shows a decision tree for signing up for Oracle Cloud.

In the decision tree, you choose your Oracle Cloud service.

If you choose any other Oracle Cloud Applications other than IaaS or PaaS, then call Oracle Sales for a subscription.

If you choose Iaas and PaaS, then you can try Oracle Cloud for free by signing up for the Free Oracle Cloud Promotion on cloud.oracle.com.
  • During the promotion, if you’re ready to purchase a subscription and if you have an idea of your monthly workload, then sign up for a Monthly Flex subscription.

  • If you don’t have an idea of your monthly workload, then sign up for a Pay-As-You-Go subscription.

  • After you signed up for the Free Oracle Cloud Promotion, if you’re not ready to purchase a subscription, then let your promotion expire.

If you don’t want to try Oracle Cloud for free, then estimate your monthly usage by using the cost estimator.
  • If you’re ready to purchase a subscription, and if you have an idea of your monthly workload, then sign up for a Monthly Flex subscription.

  • If you don’t have an idea of your monthly workload, then sign up for a Pay-As-You-Go subscription.
