Last update: October 2022

Since we provide a variety of secrets management solutions,
we’re frequently asked about the differences between HashiCorp Vault open source, Enterprise and Cloud (HCP) – so here it is!

Briefly, the open source and Enterprise editions are self-managed so you can host it anywhere. The Enterprise contains all you have in the open source editions, and it offers dozens of extra features. Vault (HCP) Cloud is a SaaS solution and it’s running on AWS only.

We made a comparison sheet including more than 10 criteria:
Platform; technology; infrastructures; maintenance; required skills; security aspects; high availability (HA) ; user interface (UI) ; Multi-cloud; supporting offline environments, pricing / total cost of ownership (TCO) and more!

We compared 3 editions:

  1. HashiCorp Vault Open-source (OSS)
  2. HashiCorp Vault Enterprise
  3. HCP Vault (HashiCorp Vault Cloud / SaaS)
