Licensing and Support

CoSort license fees are assessed once for perpetual use (i.e., a capex, not a lease, unless you want one) and fairly reflect the performance benefits derived from its host hardware. Fees are configuration-dependent, and range between USD $5,000 and $50,000. Additional CPU cores (threads) you choose to license for CoSort use add a bit more to the base license fee.

IRI applies discounts for additional licenses procured simultaneously, disaster recovery, multi-site licensing, non-profit institutions, and ISV runtime royalties. Maintenance, including new releases and technical support, is free for the first year after licensing. For details, see:

FAQ > CoSort Pricing

Support is free in the first year, then optionally renewable thereafter at 20%.

Support for, and leased (opex) use of, CoSort is included in the IRI Voracity "total data management" platform subscriptions. In Voracity, CoSort and all of its facilities are supported in Eclipse, and play additional roles in big data management, DW/BI architecture, and data governance. Learn about Voracity pricing here.

United States Government and military agencies should note that the CoSort package may be available through GSA Advantage (FSS 70), under a GSA Contract.
