Enterprise Support

HDF5® Enterprise Support (ES) is an annual subscription-based product that gives you access to HDF5 source and binaries between maintenance releases, proprietary HDF5 add-on modules, and access to HDF’s professional services. ES offers the latest innovations outside the core library, improves success in maintaining HDF5 infrastructure, and reduces security risks when using HDF5.

For Organizations and Vendors who rely on HDF5 to support mission-critical infrastructure, ES provides rapid issue response, phone and support portal access, and assistance directly from our engineers and developers.

ES comes in three versions, so you can select the option that is right for your program/division, organization, or business.
