Denodo Free Trial FAQs
A Free Trial provides the opportunity to test and validate the Denodo Platform for up to two weeks in the Cloud. It’s a mechanism for helping you to better understand the broader functionality that the Denodo Platform has to offer. It helps you explore the solution to data integration challenges using data virtualization, so that you can decide if data virtualization and the Denodo Platform are the right tools for your business. Denodo Cloud Free Trial can be run on either the Amazon Web Services (AWS) Cloud, Microsoft Azure Cloud or Google Cloud Platform (GCP).
Denodo free trial can be instantiated under a user's cloud account, so they will need to have a cloud portal account to begin with. The user only pays for the infrastructure cost (such as VM or EC2 instance), which is usually a couple of dollars per hour depending on the type of VM they are running it under. The Denodo License is completely free for 14 days. Users can work with their own data sources and have access to Denodo community support as needed.

A test drive provides you with a direct hands-on experience. It comprises large data sets and complex scenarios to prove the value of data virtualization.

There are supporting cloud collateral and wealth of information that you can reference on the community portal as well. In a free trial, you have the opportunity to test the Denodo Platform with your own data sets in a closely defined environment.
