Comparison to the enterprise edition

While the open source version is a cool stuff, however, the enterprise edition has some advantages:

  • support for multitenancy
  • easier installation, it ships as a deb package and an install script
  • support for multiple nodes (scale out), it may come handy if you have really lots of data
  • flexible SMTP routing
  • more choices for authentication by using Auth0, including SSO against Azure AD, 3rd party Oauth providers, eg. github, linkedin, etc.
  • improved attachment storage. The open source version needs the attachment table to re-assemble the email, the commercial edition doesn't need it
  • support for compressed or zipped top level dirs. Both editions store one or more files for a single email, thus resulting millions of files in /var/piler/store directory. The enterprise edition allows you to zip them to a series of zip files for easier backup
  • support for S3 compatible object stores. You may keep your data files off the archive host, eg. Amazons S3, Wasabi object store, Exoscale, etc or even in a local minio installation.
  • REST api to automate frequent tasks
  • digitally sign exported emails by pilerexport
  • private issue tracker in case of the support service
  • zipkin compatible tracing support for the GUI. You may use Jaeger as well
