5. Set the support plans, and maintenance windows for OS & software updates and give a name to your new service

OS updates include updates to the Linux kernel, security patches, and other important maintenance to keep your instance running smoothly.

Software updates update the code of the open-source application itself. We respect semantic versioning, so we will only implement minor and patch updates, in order to avoid non-breaking changes.

Maintenance windows are specified in UTC

7. After a few seconds your new service will appear in the list with a status: "Service is in deployment". It should only take 2-3 minutes before your service will be ready to use.

Once your service is ready you will get an email with details about the deployment of your software.
The URL and credentials to access the web UI or database application are also available in the Service Overview
