What is your experience regarding pricing and costs for MongoDB?

Hi,

We all know it's really hard to get good pricing and cost information.

Please share what you can so you can help your peers.

There's no license cost, it's open source.

Our customers pay for yearly licenses for MongoDB.

The pricing is quite high and we don't appreciate the solution raising prices so much. I'm following up with the licensing, however, I don't have the exact figures right now. I mostly advise some companies about that, and usually do not go into detail. What I'm interested in, for example, is when you implement some solution in some company what are the costs for that company in the near future, for example, in one or two years. This is what we are thinking about. It's not easy to implement some solutions in some small companies if at the beginning they need to pay some licensing costs upfront. For example, for Mongo DB. It would be easier if the small companies could operate without licensing for some period of time and then only after they grow to a certain size or need they would have to pay some for that usage.

At the moment, all customers are using the community version.

I don't know, but I have heard from people who procure it that it is much cheaper than Oracle.

For people who can afford it, there are good subscription offers that are available on the cloud as well as on-premises. On-premises is still a little expensive. However, if a company decides to go to the cloud, it is pretty affordable. If the company is small, there is a community edition that can be taken advantage of. If a company needs to scale quite a bit, they'll need to move up to the enterprise version. Due to the fact that we are a BFSI focused product company, we typically recommend that users go for the enterprise-level license. There is also pricing surrounding support. We're in discussions with MongoDB about that now. I don't know the exact costing just yet, however, I know it isn't free.

We use the open-source version, which is available to use free of charge.

We are using the Community Edition of MongoDB. However, we would be happy if the pricing for the full version were more competitive.

I would definitely recommend MongoDB. I'm hoping MongoDB will continue to be developed from strength to strength because I think it's an awesome tool. I hope that other products, like DocumentDB, will find a way to work with MongoDB to improve the overall stability of the product. It would be good if other services that host Mongo would become more readily available. It was very useful to actually have a hosted MongoDB set up that is maintained by Mongo Atlas. I would rate it 9 out of 10 because we had very little issues and it did exactly what we wanted it to do.
