The language of Expectations is comprehensible across team boundaries and for users of both upstream and downstream systems.

Ensure high-quality data for your dashboards, analytics, and production systems.

Secure

FAQs

  • Can I use GX Cloud if I’m not already using GX?

    Yes! GX Cloud is designed to be quick and easy for new users to set up.

  • When should I use GX OSS vs GX Cloud?

    GX Cloud is built on top of GX OSS, so they have the same power in terms of data quality capabilities. 

    GX Cloud is the right choice for most people: as SaaS, it has extra features that help users set up faster by taking care of storage, user management, and hosting of Validation Results. GX Cloud also allows for more intense collaboration workflows around data quality, and particularly collaboration with nontechnical stakeholders with its UI. In addition to working with Data Assets and Expectations in the UI, you can also see enhanced visualizations, historical data, and Expectation changelogs.

    GX OSS is the best option when you need to BYOdB, have esoteric infrastructure requirements like air gap, or just can’t use cloud-hosted SaaS.


  • What kind of security does GX Cloud have?

    GX Cloud only stores metadata about your test results, never the actual data under test. This metadata is encrypted at rest using AES-256 and in transit using TLS 1.2. We also enforce tenant isolation both in the application and in the database via Postgres Row Level Security (RLS) rules. 

    For users, GX Cloud provides user management and RBAC functionality to allow user access to organizations. Within an organization, all users can see the GX objects and associated Validation Results.

    Additionally, GX as an organization has obtained our SOC 2 Type II certification; you can see details in the GX trust center.

  • Does GX Cloud store my data?

    No. GX Cloud can see the data in the tables you connect it to, but compute, including the direct connection to Data Sources and the processing of Validations, happens within your environment. GX Cloud does not pull the data under test into the application, and GX as an organization cannot see the data in your tables at any point.

    GX Cloud only stores the test results and metadata needed to display your Validation Results and Data Docs. This metadata is entirely configurable, so you can specify what metadata GX Cloud is or isn’t allowed to retain.

  • Will you continue to support GX OSS?

    Yes. GX Cloud is built on GX OSS—OSS is the core of everything we do, and we’re committed to maintaining, developing, and improving it for the long haul. In fact, we’re in the middle of a major effort to improve it, in the form of GX 1.0.

  • How much does GX Cloud cost?

    Through public preview, GX Cloud is free to use; during public preview, we will reveal our paid tier pricing. GX OSS, as it is now, will always be free.

    Overall, we expect GX Cloud’s pricing to be very competitive relative to similar SaaS and data quality products. We’re currently conducting further research to identify the structure that will deliver the most value for our users, and we will release paid tier pricing once this research is complete.

    If you’re interested in a paid deployment and are willing to talk with us about your needs, scale, and what your budgets look like, please contact product-feedback@greatexpectations.io.

  • What is public preview?

    Public preview is an intermediate step between the Beta program and making GX Cloud generally available: it allows us to gather broader feedback on GX from a wider variety of use cases.

    During public preview, GX Cloud is open to our community. You can create a GX Cloud account and start using it with Snowflake or Postgres in minutes, completely self-service.
