Our free tier

Kubernetes has become the de-facto deployment platform and there are cheap options you can consider for hosting your personal projects.

To match the simplicity of managed Kubernetes providers like CIVO, Digital Ocean or Linode, and discount VPS providers like Hetzner, our aim with our free plan is to not make you think!

We announce free, unlimited use of Gimlet's SaaS for your personal projects.

Free, unlimited use for personal projects

There is always a catch in SaaS pricing. This we wanted to avoid at all costs when we constructed Gimlet's pricing plans.

Our plans scale based on usage. Based on how many services you deploy, you fit into the various pricing plans we have. This was clear for commercial use, but where to draw the line for our free plan? One service, or ten?

Instead, we decided that we make Gimlet's hosted version free for individuals who deploy non-commercial or personal projects with Gimlet.

Free, unlimited use for non-profits

Furthermore, it is an easy decision to include non-profits in our free, unlimited use plan.

In doubt?

If you are not sure if your project fits our free plan, email us at laszlo at gimlet.io to clarify.

And remember, you can self-host Gimlet even if you don't fit our free plan.
