Editions Overview

Exasol SaaS is a subscription service with multiple editions. Each edition provides different functionality. You may change your subscription or cancel your account at any time.

You can subscribe to either of the following Exasol SaaS editions:

  • Standard edition: The ideal choice to improve the performance of current data business intelligence (BI) stacks and give their reporting speeds a boost to enable real-time, self-service business intelligence.

  • Enterprise edition: The ideal choice for a scalable platform that needs advanced analytics and data integration. Data that requires multi-departmental analytics environments, needs to perform machine learning or artificial intelligence in the database, or has complex requirements in terms of data integration and data vitalization will be greatly enhanced with Enterprise edition.

The Exasol SaaS Free Trial provides all the functionality of the Enterprise edition. You can use the free trial for 30 days or $500 credits worth of use, whichever is depleted first. You do not need 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, see Invoicing.
