Engine licenses for executing Jobs with Talend Cloud

Flows are executable integration processes that contain Jobs published from Talend Studio. To run the flows on Talend Integration Cloud, you will need either a Cloud Engine or a Remote Engine and the appropriate license.


Available Licenses

You can access license information on the Subscription tab in Talend Management Console.

For more information on licenses or Talend Management Console, go to Account and License Information.


Cloud Engine or Remote Engine


Cloud Engine:

  • Runs within the Talend Integration Cloud
  • Managed by Talend, run on-demand to execute Jobs
  • Requires no customer resources
  • Fixed physical specifications (Memory, CPU, and Temp Disk Space)
  • Requires data sources and targets to be visible through the Internet to the Cloud Engine
  • Restricted to three concurrent Jobs

Remote Engine:

  • Downloaded from Talend Cloud
  • Runs on Windows or Linux
  • Managed by the end customer
  • Uses HTTPS calls to TIC service to get configuration information and Job definition and schedules
  • Unlimited Memory, CPU, and Temp Disk Space
  • Unlimited concurrent Jobs
  • Uses Hybrid Cloud or On-premises sources



As shown in the table above, there are advantages and disadvantages with either engine, but the criteria that will determine the use of Cloud or Remote engines will most likely be the architecture.


The architecture and use cases shown below will help you determine whether you should use a Cloud or Remote Engine.

Many thanks for the post, I have been trying to pinpoint the exact differences between both engines and was not able to find clear information about this except here!
