What our customers say

  • Just managing the servers for our old Elastic set-up costs more than the whole cost of using Humio.

    David Højelsen - Co-Founder, Mono Solutions
  • The expressiveness of the queries means that I feel like a Jedi master when I write queries in Humio.

What are Humio's hardware requirements? How can I estimate my daily ingest?

In general, Humio can manage about 1 TB of ingest log volume/day on a large single node. To estimate the requirements for your setup, we have:

Estimating daily ingest can be difficult. If you are considering Humio as an alternative to Splunk, Elastic or another solution, you cannot directly compare the ingest number. This is because Humio does not generate large indexes and metadata that increase the input's size.

The best way to estimate your daily ingest is to start a trial and see how much log and metric data you generate.

Can I retain data for more than 30 days?

Yes, we can provide additional retention policies. You can add 30 day increments to your plan at an additional cost of $100/TB per 30 day additional retention. Storage is accounted in increments of 1 TB and is on top of the data amount in the monthly ingest rate.

For example, an additional 90 day retention for an ingest rate of 1 TB would be an additional $300/month. This would get you a total retention of 120 days and allow you to keep 4 TB in total.

Another example would be to ingest 2 TB of data each month, then keep all of it for 6 months. This is 5 months of additional storage for a total of up to 12 TB, thus costing $1000/month on top of the ingest price.

How do you deal with volume bursts?

We know that log volumes can be unpredictable and we’d like to make sure that, in times of sudden log volume bursts, you have a tool that works for you.

Humio allows for log volume bursts in all versions. We'll contact you if your volumes have significantly increased, as you may need to upgrade to a higher level plan.

I have multi-TB log volumes per day, can I run a clustered version of Humio?

In general, Humio can manage about 1TB of ingest log volume/day on a single node. If you're over this volume, we can provide dedicated engineering support to assist in the install, test, and production set-up of a clustered version. Contact us to set up a trial.

How do I download a Trial On-Premises Version of Humio?

You can download Humio for a free 30-day trial here: humio.com/getting-started.

What happens at the end of my trial?

We begin the trial as soon as you start sending data to Humio or when you download an On-Premises version. Once the 30 day trial period is over, you'll only able to query your most recent data. All your data will still be available if you decide to continue using Humio. We’ll contact you before the end of your trial period to discuss plans and put together a plan that fits best with your team needs.

Can I add more than 5 users on my Humio Plan?

The standard Humio Plans allow for 5 named users for SaaS and On-Premises. Users can be added at an additional rate of $10 per month/user.

What can impact the final sales price?

The quoted prices listed above are for direct sales within the United States before taxes.

Final prices may depend on several factors, such as, but not limited to: Country of the purchaser, local sales tax and VAT, added service such as increased SLA levels or additional users licenses, or value added by third-parties.
