NetBox in the Cloud, for Free

NetBox in the Cloud, for Free
In: NetDevOps, Cisco

Yes, you read that right. NetBox Labs is now offering a generous free plan for their SaaS version of NetBox. This change is a big win for many of us who no longer need to worry about managing our own NetBox instances. With this free plan, you can take advantage of all the powerful features of NetBox without the hassle of maintenance and updates.

Why This Matters to Me?

As a blogger, I create a lot of labs and practice a lot of automation. I rely on NetBox for IP Address Management (IPAM) and other network-related tasks. Before this, I had my NetBox running as a Docker container on one of my VMs. However, there were times when I wanted to access NetBox and found out the VM was powered off. This free plan is music to my ears. There is a 100-device limit, but that's more than enough for my needs.

How to Get it?

Getting started with the free plan is as simple as going to their website and signing up for a free plan. I was up and running within a few minutes. The free plan includes up to 100 devices, 500 IP addresses, and 10k API requests/month.

Production grade free NetBox Cloud inclues generous features and usage. Get started with just a few clicks!
Please note that if you want to continue using the free plan after 14 days, you will need to provide your card information. This requirement helps protect against spam and bot accounts. NetBox Labs has made it clear that they won't charge you randomly and will notify you well in advance before making any charges.

As you can see, it only took me a few minutes to set up, and now I don't need to worry about patching and managing my own instance. Give it a try and see how it can simplify your network management tasks too.
