MarkLogic can create a new class of license. Call it the “MarkLogic Server Lite” or something like that (I don’t care). It should be well trimmed down from the Standard and Enterprise editions. No geospatial support, no entity enrichment, no compartment security, etc. Put a database size limit of 1 GB and only allow it to run on 1 CPU. And make it completely free to use, even on commercial projects.
I hope the XML markup doesn’t account towards the 1GB limit. Otherwise, he is not the first to believe throwing some bites over the fence will suddenly lead to huge adoption.
This blog is called myNoSQL and it is written by me, Alex Popescu, a software architect with a passion for open source and communities.
It records my readings, learnings, and opinions on NoSQL databases, polyglot persistence, and distributed systems -- subjects that I'm passionate about.
The opinions expressed here are my own, and no other party necessarily agrees with them.
If you feel I'm biased, I probably am.
