Voracity Platform Pricing

Low Cost, Low Risk. High Efficiency, High Return.



The Voracity graphical user interface (GUI), IRI Workbench, runs on Windows, Linux, and macOS. Built on Eclipse™, IRI Workbench uses a built-in or available JRE. Amazon and Azure platforms support bare metal and VM instances of Voracity, and PaaS solutions are in development for OCI.


The default back-end executable in Voracity (the CoSort SortCL program) runs with or without the IRI Workbench GUI on all Windows, Linux, and Unix systems listed below. Mainframe and cloud data can still be processed with the GUI (client) connection to your host (server). The Hadoop version of Voracity runs on compatible flavors of Linux.


Voracity runs on Windows XP, 7-10, Server 2000-22.


Voracity on Linux runs on 32- and 64-bit Intel x86 and Itanium hardware. It is certified for Oracle Linux 7 and 8, is Red Hat Ready (for RHEL6-8), and declared Novell YES! for SUSELinux SLES10-15). Container versions are also available.

The CoSort for Linux back-end in Voracity also runs on other chipsets as well. Being IBM Chiphopper-certified, it runs on Linux platforms including: IBM eServer x, i p, and zSeries (mainframe). Additional ports include SLES (SuSE) 8-11 and the IBM POWER 5-7 chips, and Linux variants like AsianUX, CentOS, Debian, Fedora Core, Gentoo, Mandrake and Ubuntu.

Voracity pricing tiers are simple and affordable. You can license the platform as an operational expense (OpEx) in a 1-year or discounted 5-year subscription, or for perpetual use as a capital expense (CapEx). Subscriptions to the base Voracity platform include support.

Tiered annual pricing covers small departments through global enterprises, and starts in the low five figures. Uniquely, Voracity pricing is based only on the number of hostnames running its executable to process data, be they on-premise or in the cloud. Costs outside the US and Canada, particularly through VAR partners adding local services, may vary.

Unlimited Users

Any number of application developers, BI/DW architects, DBAs, data scientists, and governance officers can interact with Voracity without racking up the cost.

Unlimited Cores

We don't care how big or small your hardware resources are, where they live, or whether they get upgraded.

Standard Support

We are there for you from Monday to Friday from 08:30 to 17:00, the manufacturer IRI from 8:00 to 18:00 Eastern Time and 24/7 service is also possible (even if it is rarely or never needed). In addition, our international partners are in your time zone to help you with proofs-of-concept, performance optimization and problem solving. Support is free at every subscription level and for the first year of a perpetual license.

5 Year Fixed Price

Whether you start out with a 1 or a 5 year subscription, your price will not increase in that 5 year period. An up-front, but discounted perpetual use option is also available.

What else should I know?


Voracity includes probably more than you'll need in the base edition. Add-on components do cost more, as do sales and services provided by IRI resellers and authorized Voracity experts.
The Voracity front-end, IRI Workbench is a free graphical IDE built on Eclipse. Distribute it throughout your organization to foster data discovery, collaborative solution design, and metadata exchange. An in-development freemium version of Voracity will accomplish many tasks in smaller data environments.
