Pricing FAQ

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, please see Instance Sizing Docs.

Estimating daily ingest can be difficult. If you are considering Humio as an alternative to a traditional log management tool, you shouldn’t 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.

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

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

If you ingest 2 TB of data each month and keep all of it for 6 months, this is 5 months of additional storage for a total of up to 12 TB per month. The cost for this scenario would be $1000/month on top of the ingest price.

We know that log volumes can be unpredictable, and we’d like to make sure that in times of sudden log volume bursts Humio continues to work for you.

Humio allows for log volume bursts in all versions. Before charging you for surpassing your data limit, we'll contact you if your volumes have significantly increased, and discuss the need to upgrade to a higher level plan.

Yes. In general, Humio can manage about 1 TB 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 setup of a clustered version. Contact us to set up a trial.

You can download a 30-day Self-hosted trial of Humio at Getting started.

We begin the trial as soon as you have installed Humio. 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 options and put together a plan that fits best with your organization needs.

The standard Humio plans allow for five named users for Self-hosted and SaaS. Users can be added at an additional rate of $120 USD/user per year.

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