Honeycomb is priced by volume of data ingested and storage capacity, i.e. # of days retained. Honeycomb compresses data which efficiently reduces your storage. Choose from two plans: Community (free) and Professional (paid). Higher volume? Get price breaks. Start a free trial with Professional for 14 days.

Are plans monthly or annual? Plans can be monthly or annual. The prices above assume an annual plan and have a built in discount of 20% over month-to-month plans.
Do you meter anything besides storage? There are soft limits on the number of events per second you can submit to Honeycomb. We’ve set this high enough (in the many thousands) so that almost no one ever encounters it. But if you do or think you will, we’re happy to create a custom plan for you with higher limits!
Do you invoice? Yes.
What kind of payments do you accept? ACH, checks, and credit cards.
How long are my events retained? You have total control over this.
Example 1: if you generate events that are 1KB in size at the rate of 50 events/sec then you’ll get 5 GB / 50 KB = 100,000 seconds = ~27.8 hours = just over one full day of retention.
Can we have a custom plan with different events/sec and storage limits? Absolutely—let’s talk.
Is there a separate charge for Honeycomb Tracing? No, Tracing comes with every Honeycomb plan.
How much storage do traces (and spans) consume? Traces work just like any events sent to Honeycomb: the content of the spans and any associated metadata determine how much storage is used by Honeycomb.
Do you offer increased security or an on-premise option? Honeycomb Secure Tenancy offers two options to address your security/compliance requirements while delivering access to the fine-grained observability that you need. Both options make use of a Honeycomb Secure Proxy running in your infrastructure. No plaintext data ever traverses Honeycomb’s infrastructure and the Honeycomb UI presents complete transparency to authorized members of your team. You have complete control of key rotation and reissuance down to the columnar level from within your own infrastructure.
- With Event Encryption, your datasets are encrypted and the keys are stored in a database on the Secure Proxy running in your infrastructure. When an authorized user accesses Honeycomb, their web browser connects to the Secure Proxy directly and the data is unencrypted for them. Honeycomb infrastructure never has access to the sensitive data in plaintext.
- With Event Hashing, your datasets are hashed and the hash mappings are stored in a database on the Secure Proxy running in your infrastructure. When an authorized user accesses Honeycomb, their browser sends the hashed data to the Secure Proxy running in your environment and receives the un-hashed data back. Again, no plaintext data reaches the Honeycomb infrastructure.
Do you sign BAAs? Yes.
