Earlier in 2017 we made some adjustments to the Oracle NoSQL Database Editions. We now have have 3 editions.
Oracle NoSQL Database Basic Edition (BE) –The full functionality of Oracle NoSQL Database* is now included in Oracle Database Enterprise Edition for no extra charge for the software and support. * Integration with Coherence, external tables, Oracle Streams,... requires Oracle NoSQL Database Enterprise Edition to be licensed (full list here).
Oracle NoSQL Database Enterprise Edition (EE) – This version is closed source and can be purchased from Oracle. It is priced either on a perpetual license basis (processor-based) or a named user basis. Additionally, support can be purchased.
Oracle NoSQL Database Community Edition (CE) – This version is open sourced and support is only available through community forums. CE is free and can be downloaded from the Oracle OTN NoSQL web page.
A detailed FAQ can be found HERE.
