After a successful 18-month Alpha and Beta testing program involving more than 2,000 participants, we’re very excited to announce that we’ve released version 1.0 of FoundationDB and general availability pricing!
Built on a distributed shared-nothing architecture, FoundationDB is a unique database technology that combines the time-proven power of ACID transactions with the scalability, fault tolerance, and operational elegance of distributed NoSQL databases.
You can download FoundationDB and use it under our Community License today and run as many server processes as you’d like to in non-production use, and use up to six processes in production for free! You don’t even have to sign up – just go to our download page for instant access. You’ll get all the technical goodness of FoundationDB - exceptional fault tolerance, high performance distributed ACID transactions, and access to our growing catalog of open source layers – regardless of whether you’re a community user or a paying customer.
Have a big application that needs more than six processes in production, or want your FoundationDB cluster supported? We’re also offering commercial licensing and support priced starting at $99 per server process per month. Check out our commercial license and support plans on our pricing page.
Our goal is to be the easiest database company to do business with, and we believe our licensing model and transparent pricing reflects just that. We’re completely redefining the price and performance of NoSQL databases while simultaneously delivering features like high performance distributed ACID transactions that our competitors can’t match.
Throughout our Beta program, we’ve received extremely encouraging feedback from our customers and users, and we believe we’re on the path to re-defining data storage for modern distributed systems. We’re thankful for all of you that have been with us this far, and can’t wait to see all the new applications FoundationDB will power as we move ahead!
