License Comparison

There are three Virtana Platform license types available: Pro (paid), Trial (14-day free Pro License), and Free (limited functionality).

The Pro License provides full access to Virtana Platform and is billed semi-annually or on-demand. The Free license provides you access to all platform features for 14 days, with the exception of SSO login. No Technical Support is provided with the Trial, but the Community is available for assistance..

After two weeks, the Trial License expires and you can either upgrade to a Pro License, or be automatically downgraded to a Free License. However, if you continue with the Free License, the feature set available to you is automatically restricted and some features become inaccessible.
