Open-source NoSQL databases are not truly free. While the code base is readily available, it doesn’t mean that it’s the right foundation for your application. And if that’s the case, that free NoSQL database could end up costing you a great deal.

  • Open-source databases are not necessarily free 
  • Many open source databases exclude parts of the codebase without a paying subscription
  • Some open-source license agreements have commercial use exclusions or limitations
  • Open source licenses can carry serious restrictions

NoSQL stands for not only SQL, which is why you can use these databases to house structured, unstructured, and semi-structured data together in one place. 

You can retrieve the data using SQL or other means. To do so, the databases use developer-friendly API interfaces to perform DML and CRUD operations. You can execute these operations using various programming languages.
