The solution doesn't cost anything to use. It's open-source.

The solution requires a license.

It is open-source. If you use it on-premise, it is free. It also has enterprise or commercial versions. If you go for the cloud version, there will be a cost, but it is lower than Oracle or Microsoft.

PostgreSQL is open-source, so if capable admins are available then the setup cost can be $0. We use internal resources, so it was completely free for us.

It is free, but if you need support, you can go for the commercial version called EnterpriseDB. They provide paid support, and they can even do hosting for you if you want standby and support.

The pricing is reasonable. Of course, our economy has been hurt a little due to COVID-19. The pandemic has affected a lot of us. It's been hard for the companies that sell services with a database cost. You really have to choose the lowest-priced options right now. Postgres offers a fair price on the market, currently. That said, it could be less expensive, especially right now. We definitely plan to continue to use the solution in the future. It's been quite good for us. That said, I'm not in the financial department and I don't know the exact cost of the solution.

I'm not sure what the licensing costs for the solution are.

It is free. There is no license on it.
