Sign up

Before you can start using CrateDB Cloud, you must first sign up for a user account.

As a CrateDB Cloud user, you can create and manage organizations and projects. As an organization administrator, you can also manage other CrateDB Cloud users as well as launch CrateDB Cloud clusters and other CrateDB Cloud products.

We currently support four signup methods: using an account at Github, Google or Microsoft, and making a separate username and password supported by Amazon Cognito.

Consequently, the signup screen will look as follows:

CrateDB Cloud signup screen

If you intend to subscribe and deploy a cluster using a credit card - our recommended procedure - any of these signup methods will work. When coming from the Software as a Service (SaaS) marketplaces, however, restrictions apply. Only the Microsoft option allows you to deploy clusters on CrateDB Cloud when coming from the Microsoft Azure Marketplace. Similarly, for cluster deployment through our other cloud provider, AWS, you should use the Amazon Cognito signup service. The Cognito authentication service is indicated in the UI as Username & Password. Both signup processes are described below.

To go directly to the cluster deployment tutorials, see the tutorial on deploying a cluster using a credit card or the tutorials on deploying a cluster via the SaaS Marketplaces respectively.

Sign in

Once you’re signed in, you should be redirected to the CrateDB Cloud Console. Since you somehow do not have an organization defined yet in the signup process, it will look like this:

CrateDB Cloud Console landing page

There’s nothing much here yet. We suggest you turn to our cluster direct deployment tutorial for next steps. By the end of that tutorial, you will have created your first CrateDB Cloud cluster and this CrateDB Cloud Console landing page will display an overview of your organization and its assets and attributes.

For more information on how the CrateDB Cloud Console works, refer to our Console documentation.

Next steps

Now that you have an account, you can choose a cloud provider. Follow the relevant tutorial steps to subscribe and deploy your first cluster.
