Use this guide to get started with Astro, the best place to run Apache Airflow.
Start a trial
Go to Try Astro to activate your free 14-day trial. To create your Astro user account, you'll need to provide a valid email address and create a password.
If your company uses Azure, Astronomer recommends installing Astro through the Azure marketplace. The Astro Azure Native ISV service includes the same 14-day trial, and you can automatically invite users from your team through the built-in Azure AD integration. See Install Astro from the Azure Marketplace.
Create an Organization and Workspace
After you've created your Astro user account, you'll be asked to create an Organization and your first Workspace.
An Organization is the highest management level on Astro. An Organization contains Workspaces, which are collections of Deployments, or Airflow environments, that are typically owned by a single team. You can manage user roles and permissions both at the Organization and Workspace levels. For more information about Astro's key concepts and components, see About Astro.
To start your trial, Astronomer recommends using the name of your company as the name of your Organization and naming your first Workspace after your data team or initial business use case with Airflow. You can update these names in the Cloud UI after you finish activating your trial.
You're now ready to start deploying and running DAGs on Astro. See Run your first DAG on Astro to choose a detailed quickstart. You'll create a local Astro project, then push that project to your Astro Deployment. The entire process takes about 5 minutes.
You have 14 days and $300 to spend in credits before your trial ends. See Manage billing to view how much credit you've used over the course of your trial. See Pricing for a breakdown of how much it costs to run Airflow on Astro.
After your trial
After your 14-day trial ends, you can no longer access your Deployments and Workspaces from the Cloud UI. You can still access your user account page and Astronomer support forms.
After your trial ends, all Deployments are automatically deleted. If you created a dedicated cluster, it is also deleted. Any code that you deployed to Astro will be lost. If you need additional time to evaluate Astro, or you need to copy your configuration for future use, you can:
