Paradigm4 develops, tests, documents, and supports SciDB in two editions.

  • The Community Edition is free software: you can redistribute it and/or modify it under the terms of the Affero General Public License, version 3, as published by the Free Software Foundation.  Note that Community Edition is open source, but not open development. For the time being, we are concentrating on developing the core SciDB engine.  Along the way we will continue to build acceptance and a community of users.  After that we’ll seek a community of contributors in an open-development model.
  • The Enterprise Edition includes functionality and support not included in the community edition, including additional math and machine-learning functions, system management tools, and high availability support.  The enterprise edition is sold under a Paradigm4 license.  Contact us for more information.
