Can I use MongoDB free version for commercial use?
The short answer is âgenerally, yesâ as far as deploying the MongoDB
community edition for commercial use. A commercial license is only required
in some circumstances, such as deploying MongoDB Enterprise software to
The core MongoDB server is licensed under AGPL v3.0 and the mongodb.org
drivers are Apache License 2.0 (see: MongoDB Licensing
<https://www.mongodb.org/licensing> and The AGPL
<http://blog.mongodb.org/post/103832439/the-agpl>). Commercial licenses are
also available for MongoDB Enterprise Advanced
includes additional security and administration features, as well as
warranty and indemnification.
The intent of using AGPL as the open source license for the MongoDB server
is to ensure modifications to the core database code are contributed to the
community. Your application connecting via standard mongodb.org
Apache-licensed database drivers is considered an independent program, and
can be under any license (including closed source).
There are no restrictions if you are using the mongodb.org drivers, not
making any modifications to the core server code, and not
redistributing/embedding the MongoDB server.
If you make any modifications to the core server code for your
application, these changes should be made publicly available (e.g. via
public GitHub fork). You should also review the Contributorâs Guide
<https://docs.mongodb.org/v3.0/contributors/getting-started/>, which has
information on how to contribute to the core server project.
If you are redistributing the core server package, deploying MongoDB
Enterprise server, or embedding the MongoDB server in an OEM or installable
commercial solution you will probably need commercial licenses and should Contact
MongoDB <https://www.mongodb.com/lp/contact/enterprise> for follow-up.
