A Spatial Analytics platform available on your own private infrastructure

CARTO offers self-hosted solutions for enterprise organizations and government bodies facing strict data security, compliance, and regulation requirements.

Is there any difference in functionality between the Cloud platform and Self-Hosted?

No, with CARTO Self-Hosted you can enjoy the same powerful and versatile experience from our managed cloud platform, including building maps, visualizing and analyzing spatial data at scale, and developing high performing applications—but deployed in your own controlled environment.

What’s the value of the commercial Self-Hosted offering if CARTO’s software is Open Source?

While our open source deployment may be helpful for testing purposes, we do not recommend it for projects where performance, high concurrency, or security are relevant. With our commercial Self-Hosted offering, we provide direct technical support, architecture advisory, maintenance and managed software upgrades. It also comes with a powerful installer with all required components packaged and a handy set of tools for making configuration tasks easier

How do I get CARTO Self-Hosted?

Contact Sales and one of our Account Executives will contact you to understand how you can make the most out of CARTO Self-Hosted for your organization. We will understand your use case to give you advice about the architecture that best suits your needs and we will gather all required technical information about your infrastructure to properly prepare for the installation.

What exactly is installed on my server or in my private cloud with CARTO Self-Hosted?

The entire cloud native CARTO tech stack: including APIs, Builder, Analytics Toolbox, Location Data Services, cache layer…and more.

What kind of architecture deployments are supported by CARTO Self-Hosted?

Depending on your performance requirements, CARTO Self-Hosted can be scaled from one single instance, up to a high-availability setup, in order to provide the best fit to cover your application needs—allowing you to fine-tune resource allocation to each component of the stack to get optimal performance while complying with strict security policies.

What is included in my support and services package?

Depending on the support package, we include various offerings as part of our subscription, such as email access to our Support Team, direct help with deployments, installs and screen sharing sessions for troubleshooting.
