Getting Started

What does the trial include?

The trial gives you full access to our system and includes 2000 core-MHz CPU, 1024 MB RAM, 15GB disk space and 2 GB data transfer, which is enough capacity to run a medium-sized server or several small servers.

Are there any restrictions on trials?

The trial is limited to 2000 core-MHz CPU, 1024 MB RAM, 15GB disk space and 2 GB data transfer. It lasts for 7 days. We block outbound connections to smtp, ftp, ssh and telnet servers to prevent abuse of our trials for sending spam or conducting dictionary attacks against other internet hosts.

How do I run Windows during my trial?

There are 3 options for setting up a server to run Windows during your trial:

  • Purchase a licence for that month on the subscriptions page of your account and then use one of our pre-installed images. We do not offer pre-installed images of Windows for free as part of the trial, as we have to pay Microsoft license fees for these.
  • Select ‘self-install from CD’, rather than ‘pre-installed images’, and then install from the Windows Server 2008 Trial CD yourself.
  • Upload your own installation CD using our upload tool or FTP to ftp.skalicloud.com with username and password ‘elastic’.

Is it possible to have a trial for longer or with extra infrastructure capacity?

We are happy to consider requests for larger and/or longer trials on a case-by-case basis. Please email us if you would like extra time or resources.

When I sign up, can I continue to use the servers I created during the trial?

Yes. You can purchase subscriptions or add pre-paid balance at any time from inside your account. If you sign up before the end of your trial, you will be able to continue running your servers uninterrupted.
