JuliaBox (Free) Ends - JuliaBox (Paid) Starts at Just $7 per Month for Academic Users: In January, we notified the Julia community that Julia's growth was making free JuliaBox unsustainable, and that we would sunset the free version of JuliaBox. As a result, the free version of JuliaBox ended on Oct 31, 2019. We are grateful to all JuliaBox users - especially our paid users. If you want to continue using JuliaBox, please sign up for the paid version. For academic users, the cost starts at just $7 per month. If you think your organization, academic department or university should purchase JuliaBox, please contact the decision-maker at your organization, academic department or university, and explain to that person how and why JuliaBox is important to your work. Pricing information is available online, including the 50% academic discount. For other questions about purchasing a paid subscription to JuliaBox, including setting up a new account for your organization and invoicing, please contact us.

About Julia and Julia Computing

Julia is the fastest high performance open source computing language for data, analytics, algorithmic trading, machine learning, artificial intelligence, and other scientific and numeric computing applications. Julia solves the two language problem by combining the ease of use of Python and R with the speed of C++. Julia provides parallel computing capabilities out of the box and unlimited scalability with minimal effort. Julia has been downloaded more than 11 million times and is used at more than 1,500 universities. Julia co-creators are the winners of the 2019 James H. Wilkinson Prize for Numerical Software. Julia has run at petascale on 650,000 cores with 1.3 million threads to analyze over 56 terabytes of data using Cori, one of the ten largest and most powerful supercomputers in the world.

Julia Computing was founded in 2015 by all the creators of Julia to develop products and provide professional services to businesses and researchers using Julia.
