What is the best way to get the most out my trial?

Here are a few pro tips to help you get the most out of your Avalanche Cloud Data Platform trial.

Tip 1: To maximize your time testing Avalanche, we recommend that you use the smallest warehouse size necessary. The lower the warehouse size (2AU vs. 4AU), the fewer AU’s will be consumed will help you make the most of your $500 credits.

Tip 2: If you loaded data into the warehouse, stop the warehouse to conserve your compute costs. The Avalanche platform will automatically stop after 60 minutes of inactivity.
