You can access the StreamNative Cloud product through Google Cloud Marketplace. If you already have a Google Cloud account, you can get started by subscribing to the StreamNative Cloud product in Google Cloud Marketplace as detailed below. After subscribing and connecting your Google Cloud account to your StreamNative Cloud account, you can view and pay your bills on the Billing console in your Google Cloud account. This subscription uses a Pay-As-You-Go billing model, so your bills will vary depending on usage.
To use this service, you must complete the following:
- Have a Google Cloud account with an account ID enabled for purchases. Contact your billing administrator if you have questions about your Google Cloud account.
- Create a StreamNative Cloud account by following the sign-up of the StreamNative Cloud Quick Start.
- Log in to both Google Cloud Marketplace and StreamNative Cloud Console.
