Hi Lorenzo,

In VoltDB v4.0, snapshot save/restore is an Enterprise kit feature only. Our enterprise kit download includes a trial license, and we're offering community users a special upgrade path/offer to Enterprise, drop me a note if you'd like details.

Thanks,

John Piekos
VP of Engineering

Ok, but I want to use VoltDB for an open source project. Your upgrade is free or has a price?

Thanks,
Lorenzo.

Hi XiaoRong,

Upgrading from Community to Enterprise, code-wise, is easy, no code conversion needed, simply install the enterprise kit. You can then enable enterprise features such as elasticity, durability, and export.

Enterprise is our commercial offering, and is priced based on number of nodes and transactional throughput. I will have Mike Pogany (mpogany@voltdb.com), our Sales VP reach out to you.

Thanks,

John

Community Edition does not have any persistence feature.
