Trials and licensed apps

When you first sign up to use Lucidworks Cloud, you get a 7-day trial for a single app.

To license an app, contact Lucidworks.

After you have licensed an app, the Lucidworks Cloud dashboard indicates that the app is licensed.

Hosting regions

Each Lucidworks Cloud account, including all apps for the account, is hosted on servers in one of two regions:

  • United States of America (USA)

  • European Union (EU)

Before Lucidworks sets up your account, you will be asked to choose a hosting region for the account. The hosting region can’t be changed after an app is created.

Base your choice of the hosting region on considerations such as these:

  • Proximity of your users to the region – Choosing the region closest to the users of your search apps minimizes latency and maximizes performance. (This might not be true for international users.)

  • Data policy considerations – For reasons associated with data policies, you might need to choose a specific hosting region.

Note
Multi-region hosting is not currently available.

On the dashboard, you can see the hosting region on the app tiles:
