Pricing FAQ

How is ingest measured?

Ingest is measured by the amount of uncompressed data being ingested into Axiom via any of it’s ingest APIs.

How do you handle bursts in ingest volume?

All Axiom versions allow for volume bursts, as we know logging can be unpredictable.

If burst volumes are sustained, we’ll contact you to discuss the change in usage and if a another plan would cover your needs better.

How can I start my Axiom trial?

Please get in touch with sales to start your trial. We’ll give you a special license key that will unlock all Axiom features for a period of time that works best for your organization to evaluate Axiom.

We’ll also be at hand to help you throughout your trial, from helping pick the best deployment architecture to ensuring all your data can flow into Axiom.

What happens at the end of my trial?

At the end of your trial, your Axiom deployment will revert back to the free edition of Axiom. Your existing data will still be stored but inaccessible for queries. By purchasing a full Axiom license, all restrictions will be lifted.

When will Axiom Cloud be available?

Axiom Cloud is scheduled to be released in Q1 2021. You can register for early access & updates to Axiom Cloud here!

What are Queries Per Second and how can they effect my deployment?

Queries Per Second (QPS) are a measurement of how many queries at once can be ran on your deployment.

While Axiom has a quite generous QPS allowance across its tiers, if you are building apps on top of Axiom (such as adding logging/metrics/analytics to your own product based on Axiom), then the Enterprise versions of Axiom completely remove these limits.

What are the Free Tier limits?

The free tier on Axiom Cloud and Axiom Self-Host allows you and your team to familiarize yourself with Axiom and grow into the paid plans. As you would expect, the free tiers come with some limitations, which we have documented below:
