Test Drive is an Azure feature that allows you to try out software in the cloud for free.
Previously, I wrote about how Getting started with Couchbase on Azure is easy and free. That post told you how to get started with $200 in Azure credit. With Test Drive, however, it’s even easier to get started, and you don’t have to use any of that $200 credit.
Test Drive on Azure Marketplace
The only thing you need before you start is a Microsoft account, which is free.
Start by going to the Couchbase Enterprise product page on Azure.
There’s a big “Test Drive” button. Simply click to get started.
Before you click to get started, notice that the Test Drive has a limited duration. You will get 3 hours to evaluate Couchbase Server.
Step by Step Evaluation Labs
We’ve prepared 4 step-by-step labs that you can follow to start evaluating Couchbase Server.
The test drive deployment is a fully functional Couchbase Server Enterprise cluster with all features enabled. The only limit you have is time.
Couchbase is proud to partner with Microsoft to make this test drive available to you.
