This approach ensures you have a transparent measure of your business's data activity, which is vital for strategic planning and operational efficiency. . Task capacities per Alumio pricing plan can range from 100k yearly Tasks with the Alumio Starter Edition, and it can grow beyond 1.25 million tasks per year with the Alumio Growth Edition.


What is an Alumio Data Engine?

Integration Platform-ipaas-slider-right

They allow integrated systems to manage an increased data load by handling multiple Tasks in parallel. This is crucial for businesses looking to grow their integrations and increase their process automation. By handling operations in the background, Data Engines ensure that the main functionalities of an application are not bogged down by resource-intensive Tasks.

Alumio provides a higher number of Data Engines with each pricing plan, with the Starter Edition providing just 1 Data Engine and the Alumio Enterprise Edition providing 6 Data Engines. Users can also purchase additional Alumio Data Engines as add-ons to further enhance the task processing capabilities of their integrations.
