SaaS Editions Overview

This section provides an overview of the different Exasol SaaS editions.

Exasol SaaS is offered in two editions that provide different levels of functionality:

  • Standard edition: This is the ideal choice for organizations with smaller data volumes who do not require advanced analytics and data integration features or extended support.

  • Enterprise edition This is the ideal choice for organizations who need a scalable platform for advanced analytics and data integration, with support for multi-departmental analytics environments, machine learning or artificial intelligence in the database, and data virtualization.

The Exasol SaaS Free Trial provides all the functionality of the Enterprise edition for 30 days or $500 credits worth of use, whichever is depleted first. You do not have to provide payment information during the trial period. After the trial, you will be charged monthly for the subscription of your choice.

For more information about subscriptions and billing, see Invoicing.
