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. We offer two types of free trials, both of which can be run on either the Amazon Web Services (AWS) Cloud or the Microsoft Azure Cloud.
We have designed the free trials to provide the utmost flexibility and ease of validating the capabilities of the Denodo Platform for data virtualization. They quickly demonstrate the value to every stakeholder in the business. The two types of free trials are:
That depends on the type of free trial that’s of interest to you. When the free trial is instantiated under Denodo’s account, there is no cost whatsoever. After a quick two-minute signup process, you are ready to go, and you do not need an account on AWS or Azure. But if customers invoke the free trial under their own cloud account, customers bears the infrastructure costs for the 14-day trial. The Denodo License is completely free in both free trials.
The table below outlines the key differences between the two free trials.

Free trials are available for 14 calendar days from the time of signup. We recommend that you try out a Denodo Test Drive before signing up for a Denodo Free Trial. Test drives provide better insight into what you can do with the Denodo Platform and how you can best navigate and plan for your free trial. If you need extra time to complete further validation, you can reach out to the Denodo Cloud team (firstname.lastname@example.org) and we will work with you to accommodate the request.
Yes, when you start the free trial under Denodo’s Cloud account, we automatically package the test drive artifacts, including the sample data sets for your extended testing. This provides a quick way to further validate and learn about the use cases that you have learnt during the test drives. This is good for a quick POT (proof of technology), and it will help in conveying the value of data virtualization to business stakeholders.
A free trial is meant to provide you with deeper insights and confidence in validating the data virtualization use case using the Denodo Platform in the cloud.
You have two options after completing the Free Trial:
A test drive provides you with a direct hands-on experience. We leverage large data sets and complex scenarios to prove the value of data virtualization. Through this process, you will learn about data virtualization capabilities that will help you make better, more informed business decisions. In a free trial, if you leverage your own cloud account, we provide you with the opportunity to test the Denodo Platform with your own data sets in a closely defined environment. Test drive are available for two hours, while free trials can be used for up to 14 days.
If this happens, for whatever reason, reach out to us and we can help you plan out the scope of your free trial. The key objective should be to build confidence around your desired use case, or at least understand how far you can experiment in evaluating the benefits of data virtualization.
Getting assistance during the free trial is easy. Post your questions in the Denodo Community, and someone from the Denodo team will get back to you within 24 hours.
