Pricing FAQs

Yes, Customers typically have multiple deployments within their account. A way to think about deployments would be a mapping to your application environments. Thus, one could have multiple non-production environments, a production environment and optionally a disaster recovery environment. Advanced use cases may have multiple production level clusters running in multiple geographical regions.

No, most customers have non-production environments under Silver Plans, and Production environments under Gold, Platinum or Platinum Plus Plans. It’s not advised to run production environments on Silver Plans.

If you are a customer with a Term commitment (Annual or 3Y), you can upgrade a deployment and we will bill you pro-rata for the remaining term based on the new pricing. You can downgrade your plan at the end of the current Term.

No, SearchStax offers dedicated environments with Native Solr. We do not have any artificial limits on the number of collections.

Our dedicated plans (Silver, Gold, Platinum & Platinum Plus) are all run under SearchStax’s Cloud Provider account, however we have the ability to create a dedicated Virtual Private Network that houses your deployments. Our Enterprise Plan has options that allow you to utilize your own Cloud Provider account and we can run within your account.

You retain all ownership of data that you send to your account.
