we have planned to develop an energy monitoring system.
We would like to use a fast and reliable NoSql database as a basis, which is why we came across Mongo DB.
However, referring to the MongoDB website, we have a few questions:
- Is MongoDB a free software, which we are allowed to install on our server and also use commercially ?
- Is there a limit to the size of the database ? We have read here about 500GB. Or is this limit only if we operate the database in a cloud offered?
Or am I allowed to run the MongoDB locally on our server, without limitation of the DB size, commercially ?
Commercial means that our customers access the data in MongoDB via a web platform.
It would be great if I could get more information here. Unfortunately, in the articles I have read so far, it was not clear to what extent MongoDB can be operated commercially (business) free of charge (without restriction of the DB size).
Hope you can help us little bit to clarify issues
Thanks a lot for your help
