Estimated completion time: 3 minutes

Atlas free clusters provide a small-scale development environment to host your data. Free clusters never expire, and provide access to a subset of Atlas features and functionality.

Paid clusters provide full access to Atlas features, configuration options, and operational capabilities. For more information on paid clusters, including deployment instructions, see Create a Cluster.


You can deploy only one free cluster per Atlas project.

You can create free clusters through the Atlas CLI, Atlas User Interface, and Atlas Administration API. Select the appropriate tab based on how you would like to create the free clusters.

Now that your cluster is provisioned, proceed to Manage the Database Users for Your Cluster.
