Self hosting

Aspose Cloud is centrally hosted on our own servers and we manage the scaling, performance, security, and maintenance for our customers.

We also provide customers the choice to take our SaaS application and host it on their own private infrastructure. This allows for full control control over data, security and services. We offer two distinct self-hosting options across two websites:

Our cloud service is available as a Docker image, which essentially is the same set of APIs that can be used from Aspose Cloud, but it is packaged in a way that allows the customer to host it in their own environment.

Browse Aspose on Docker Hub to check which APIs are currently available. Note that not all of our APIs are available on Docker yet, but we are actively expanding support.

The pricing plan is the same as our cloud based service with the exception that storage methods are not charged. Check out the trial page for instructions about how to get started. The keys required to use the self hosted version of Aspose Cloud differs to the keys provided with the online SaaS version. To receive your license keys please head to the Self-Hosting Purchase Wizard and place your order.

Purely usage information (number of operations performed and total file size processed) is sent to our servers, no document data or your customer data is sent to us.

Aspose Cloud is powered by which provides file format APIs developed primarily for .NET and Java. Customers can chose to use our native .NET or Java APIs on their own premises with the following license types:
