DSE licensing questions

Hi,

We're interested in using DSE and were wondering:

* If we can use it for our OSS project and what the terms would be for re-distributing?

* How the licensing will work, if we have a commercial offering?

Many thanks in advance!

Kind regards,

Martin

DataStax Enterprise (DSE) is a subscription-based product so you will need to have an annual subscription to be able to use it.

DSE isn't open-sourced but it is based on open-source Apache Cassandra. If you are talking in terms of reselling DSE bundled in your product, I'll be happy to pass on your information to our Sales team if you provide me additional context on what you're after. Cheers!

[UPDATE] I forgot to mention that if you weren't already aware, we also have DataStax Astra -- a cloud-based Cassandra-as-a-service offering that is compatible with open-source Apache Cassandra.

Astra comes with Stargate -- an open-source data gateway that provides REST API, GraphQL API, Document API and CQL access to your database that is enabled on all Astra databases, ready to use out-of-the-box.

You can try it for free with no credit card required. You can launch a Cassandra cluster within minutes in just a few clicks.

Thanks for these clarifications, Erick!

Yeah, we're aware of Astra and Stargate and we've tried them out.

We're also interested in whether there are any plans of opensourcing (or providing an opensource version of) your Gremlin graph implementation?

I don't have details of the roadmap for Graph that is available publicly so we're not able to respond to that question yet. Cheers!
