I am planning to upgrade the CDH clusters from Express Edition to Enterprise Edition, but I have a few questions on Cloudera Enterprise Edition License as follows.
1. Where and How to buy the Cloudera Enterprise License, do I have to call the Cloudera custom service to get the license ?
2. Where can I find the subscription price of the Cloudera Enterprise License ?
3. My production environment is in a totally off-line environment, how can Cloudera know when I start to use the License ?

@mbigelow, thanks again.
1. Yes exactly, I just want to access to all of the features, especially the Cloudera Navigator feature, and I don't need any technical support so far.
As I know there are roughly two Cloudera editions with respectively Express Edition(free) and Enterprise Edition( charged) , so what is the the community version you metioned ?
Is the community version free with all features accessible?
2. Just curious for the license issue. When the license is expired, the sales guy can reach me, but they can not "reach" my cluster since my cluster is totally off-line, so there is no way the sales guy can control the accessibility of the feature once the feature is actived.
The only possibility I think is that the cluster itself terminates the feature when license is expired. If so, then there are many ways to "reuse" the license in the off-line environment.
Let's say, my good friend buy a 3 years license, I am also able to use his license in my cluster without letting the sales guy knows. I know this is illeagle, but just for curious how the cloudera guarantee the "one license one cluster per person" if the cluster is in a totally off-line environment.

It sounds like you have several different questions that could lead to additional ones depending on the answers. I think your best bet would be to contact sales and see what options are available for your situation. Another option, if it applies to your situation, is the Cloudera Developer Program.
