Create a Solution

TigerGraph Cloud solutions offer a full-scale analytics platform to store and query your graph data.

This page guides you through the process of creating a free-tier solution (subject to limits).

Free-tier solutions are for training, learning, and small-scale proof of concept use cases. Free-tier solutions do not support backup and restore.

For more advanced testing and learning, consider adding a payment method and using paid-tier solutions to access the backup and restore feature.

On the home page, if you have no solutions and have the privileges to create a solution in your organization, you will see an option in the center to create a solution.

3. Select TigerGraph version and starter kit.

Not all TigerGraph versions that are offered on-premises are offered on TigerGraph Cloud. In the dropdown list, choose the version of TigerGraph you want to run.

TigerGraph Cloud Starter Kits are built with a sample graph data schema, dataset, and queries focused on a specific use case to help you get started quickly. Most of our starter kits have a demo video that walks you through the schema and the queries built for its use case. If you wish to proceed with your own schema and data, select Blank.
