Wolfram Computation Meets Knowledge

Wolfram Language Server Deployment Options

Wolfram Language functionality through servers

Wolfram Language functionality through servers

Wolfram Cloud

A Wolfram-hosted public cloud providing a full notebook interface, APIs and forms via the web

For anyone who wants a fully hosted and complete Wolfram Language environment: zero installation and maintenance, automatic web interface updates, performance and quality improvements and the latest Wolfram Language features

Services

Notebook sessions, expression evaluation, instant APIs, web forms, scheduled tasks, embeddable notebooks

Deployment

Wolfram-hosted cloud infrastructure

Delivery mechanism

Software as a service (SaaS)

Users

Managed user accounts via the Wolfram ID system

Permissions

Full access control over individual cloud objects (read/write/execute/...)

Licensing

Free and paid plans (monthly and annual)

Hosting

Wolfram-owned geographically distributed computation clusters

Typical clients

Web browsers; Wolfram Client Libraries; Wolfram Desktop and mobile applications; any HTTP-capable program

Restrictions

Memory and computation time limits depending on subscription plans. Computations run in a sandboxed environment, with certain operations restricted.

Wolfram Enterprise Private Cloud

A self-hosted private cloud providing a full notebook interface, APIs and forms on your intranet

For organizations who want to host and maintain a full Wolfram Cloud on their own hardware. It provides additional privacy, security and computational benefits over the public cloud. You can also tighten or relax certain security restrictions and computation limits that are in place in the public cloud.

Services

Notebook sessions, expression evaluation, instant APIs, web forms, scheduled tasks, embeddable notebooks

Deployment

Self-hosted cloud infrastructure

Delivery mechanism

Virtual machine image file

Users

Supply your own user management (e.g. Keycloak)

Permissions

Full access control over individual cloud objects (read/write/execute/...)

Licensing

Hosting

On your own servers

Typical clients

Web browsers; Wolfram Client Libraries; Wolfram Desktop and mobile applications; any HTTP-capable program

Restrictions

Fine-grained control on limits, or none. Configured by the Enterprise Private Cloud administrator.

Wolfram Application Server [coming soon]

A self-hosted, highly scalable web server dedicated to serving Wolfram Language APIs, forms and web applications

For organizations who want to deploy Wolfram Language–based APIs and forms, or build their own Wolfram Language–backed web applications, without the full capabilities of the Wolfram Cloud (such as the notebook interface and user accounts)

Services

Instant APIs, web forms and Java Server Pages (JSP) with dynamic Wolfram Language content

Deployment

Self-hosted infrastructure with support for Kubernetes and Docker

Users

No user accounts

Permissions

No restrictions

Licensing

Hosting

On your own servers

Typical clients

Web browsers; Wolfram Client Libraries; Wolfram Desktop and mobile applications; any HTTP-capable program

Wolfram Web Engine for Python [open source]

A standalone Python-based web server configured to serve Wolfram Language–based APIs and forms. Integrates well with Django and aiohttp-based server solutions.

For those who want a lightweight Wolfram Language server solution that is open source and user extendible

Wolfram Engine connected to a Python web server framework (suitable for use by Python server developers to include the Wolfram Engine in their development stack)

Services

Instant APIs, web forms, ...

Deployment

Single machine, with multiple Wolfram Engine kernels

Licensing

Free for pre-production software development. Contact us for commercial options.

Hosting

On your own servers

Typical clients

Wolfram Language Lightweight Web Evaluator [open source]

A standalone single-threaded server implemented completely in the Wolfram Language with no other software dependencies

For those who want to simply evaluate Wolfram Language expressions via HTTP

Services

Wolfram Language expression evaluations

Deployment

Single machine, with single Wolfram Engine kernel

Licensing

Free for pre-production software development. Contact us for commercial options.

Hosting

On your own servers

Typical clients

WSTP Server/Evaluator [coming soon]

A standalone program that manages a long-lived pool of Wolfram Engines and makes them available to WSTP-capable programs

For people who want to connect and reconnect to long-lived pre-initialized Wolfram Engines

Persistent Wolfram Engine communicating via WSTP (Wolfram Symbolic Transfer Protocol)

Protocols

WSTP (any port)

Services

Wolfram Language expression evaluation, connections to notebook interfaces

Deployment

Command-line program; daemon

Typical clients

WolframScript; Wolfram Notebook front end; Wolfram Client Libraries; parallel kernel computations
