G.V() Basic is going away February 5th, 2024 – what you need to know and what’s next.
What will change with G.V() Basic going away?
G.V() Basic is our free tier. It allows you to use most of our software’s functionality without restrictions for the following Apache TinkerPop Graph Systems:
- Gremlin Server
- Azure Cosmos DB Emulator
Continuing to support the developer experience with G.V() Lite
Why is this happening?
G.V() is a passion project that I’ve now embarked on three years ago at time of writing. G.V() saw it’s first beta release after a year of work and remained 100% free to use until January 2023, when we’ve introduced G.V() Pro for Amazon Neptune and Azure Cosmos DB. We’ve received a lot of great feedback that helped us improve the software over the years.
To continue delivering quality updates at a monthly cadence we need financial support from our user base. With your support we can work on more ambitious features that keep pushing the boundaries of tooling in the Apache TinkerPop ecosystem.
We hope that you will understand and support this decision – it’s essential to sustaining the growth of our software.
Will there be exemptions/exceptions?
We offer a 30% discount on G.V() Pro for small companies like us that you can apply for here.
If you are a student or an academic looking to use G.V() for learning or educational purposes, contact us at email@example.com via your academic email address and we’ll provide you with a G.V() Pro license free of charge.
If you’re a committer to one of the open source Apache TinkerPop systems listed above, we’ll also be happy to send you a free G.V() Pro license. Just contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org from an email address that can be tied back to any of your contributions in the last 12 months.
