Add dev clusters in Camunda Platform 8 SaaS and test models faster

You can now take advantage of development clusters on our professional plan to test your models quickly outside of production.

We are excited to introduce development clusters today. Development clusters offer a cost-effective way to test processes and decisions outside of your production environment allowing you to iterate faster, experiment more openly, and ensure you consistently deliver exceptional bug-free experiences.

Back in September, we updated the pricing for Camunda Platform 8 SaaS – Professional Edition, making it more affordable for any project size, with plans starting as low as $49 / month. Starting today, you can deploy and run BPMN and DMN models on such a cluster without additional costs per process instance or decision instance. This new environment is available to use today and can be added for just $5 per cluster per day.

Ready to try it out and see how it can help you test your models more quickly and easily? Follow the steps in the tutorial below to add this functionality and get started.
