Original topic: TiDB Cloud免费试用问题

I want to apply for a free trial of TiDB Cloud, but the webpage won’t open. I’m not sure if it’s an issue with the company’s network or an official issue. I’ll try again at home using my own broadband.

You need a VPN…

TiDB Cloud doesn’t need a VPN? It’s just a bit slow to open.

Cloud services are very slow to open, you have to wait for a while.

Uh, I can’t open it without a VPN. With a VPN, it opens…

Since it’s on AWS, using a proxy will be faster.

When you can’t open it, you can use a VPN~

It’s a bit slow to open, try refreshing it a few times.

Is there a domestic cloud?

| username: ShawnYan | Original post link

There is TiDB on the cloud domestically, but for testing purposes, it is better to set up a cluster locally.

I turned it on as soon as I got home. It seems to be a company network issue. But I see the Region is in Tokyo. Why isn’t there a domestic one (the cloud provider is AWS)?

Domestic manufacturers and domestic users still need to use a VPN to access?

Recommend using a VPN :smile:

What can you use for GitHub without a VPN? :joy:

| username: ShawnYan | Original post link

Because there is no AWS in China… There is only Amazon Web Services, which is not exactly the same.

The website is indeed a bit slow to open.
