HCP Vault Starter — now generally available on AWS — offers a production-grade 3-node cluster at a reduced price point.
We are pleased to announce a new fully managed HashiCorp Vault offering called "Starter" for Amazon Web Service (AWS) environments on the HashiCorp Cloud Platform (HCP). The new Starter cluster is a production-grade, 3-node cluster with a feature set very similar to that of the Standard cluster, but with a limit of 25 clients. Offered at a reduced price point, it’s a great self-service option for customers with modest scale.
HCP Vault allows organizations to get Vault clusters up and running quickly, get access to best-in-class secrets management and encryption capabilities, and let the platform provide resilience and operational excellence as a service. We initially launched HCP Vault general availability with a Development node and Standard cluster, and gave details on the push-button deployment and fully managed infrastructure it provides.
In this post, we will review some of the new features and capabilities introduced since we launched HCP Vault and lay out the pricing options for this managed service.
HCP Vault is generally available in AWS regions in the U.S. (Oregon and Virginia) and Europe (Frankfurt, Ireland, and London). We plan to add additional region options in the U.S. and Europe, and expand to other parts of the world in the future.
HCP Vault offers multiple packages at discrete price points:
As a fully managed service, HCP Vault is the easiest way to secure, store, and tightly control access to tokens, passwords, certificates, encryption keys, and other sensitive data. HCP Vault also enables secure secrets management across Amazon EC2, Amazon EKS, AWS Lambda, and many other AWS services.
We designed HCP Vault to minimize the steps necessary to set up Vault within your AWS environments. At a high level, operators need to take these four steps to start using HCP Vault:
That’s it; you are ready to connect and use HCP Vault. In practice, these steps will have a range of options when you drill down into them, so we’ve created a series of Learn guides to help you manage the finer details of your setup.
We are very excited about making the Starter cluster of HCP Vault generally available. We recommend creating an HCP account and trying HCP Vault for yourself. For more information about HCP Vault and pricing, please visit our product page or sign up through the HCP portal.
