VMware Cloud Director service offers a free trial that you can use to explore different customer use cases and proof-of-concept scenarios.

As part of your free trial, you can create 2 VMware Cloud Director instances within your VMware Cloud organization for a duration of 30 days with no billing applied to them.

During this period, you can upgrade to a paid version of VMware Cloud Director service either by setting up a payment method for an on-demand subscription, or by creating a commit subscription.

To extend the trial for a VMware Cloud Director instance, contact your VMware sales representative.

After your free trial expires, if you choose not to upgrade, your VMware Cloud Director instance is deleted and archived for a grace period of 7 days, after which it becomes unrecoverable.
