We are building node.js application with mongo db community edition. Can we able to use mongodb community edition for free of cost in Production environment. Will there be any licensing issues.
- MongoDB Community is the source available and free to use edition of MongoDB.
- MongoDB Enterprise is available as part of the MongoDB Enterprise Advanced subscription and includes comprehensive support for your MongoDB deployment. MongoDB Enterprise also adds enterprise-focused features such as LDAP and Kerberos support, on-disk encryption, and auditing.
Yes it is free to use.
Consider MongoDB Atlas if you don’t want to manage mongodb yourself.
Welcome to the community @Durga_Prasad_Gembali!
The MongoDB Community Server is licensed under the Server Side Public License (SSPL) . As @chris mentioned, the Community Server is freely available and there are also paid options including MongoDB Enterprise (for self-hosted) and MongoDB Atlas (cloud managed).
There is a usage caveat on the SSPL which applies to publicly offering MongoDB as a service. For more information, please see the Server Side Public License FAQ .
There’s also a similar discussion from earlier in the year which you may find helpful: Licensing when it comes to develop commercial applications.
