How many applications can I build with the free edition?
With the free edition you can create as many applications as you want and deploy them in a production environment. There is one environment available per application and you can build as many applications as you want.
When should I upgrade from the free edition to a commercial edition?
Typically you will upgrade if you need more than 10 users or if you need more enterprise-level features and services such as platform support, daily backup of your data and detailed monitoring. Here is a detailed edition comparison chart.
How do I upgrade?
Upgrading is easy – you’ll keep your user account, and of course all the apps that you have already built. Simply contact us to sign-up for one of our other plans and you’ll be up & running in no time.
What’s the definition of an application? How big can it be?
The short answer is: you decide – there are no limitations.
We have heard this from developers across the world. You need to focus on the business need and don’t want to have to work around artificial limitations to make your app fit into some licensing model or risk big upcharges. At Mendix you don’t have any of such limitations. Technically an “App” is the complete application as it is set up and organized in the Mendix App Platform. It can contain any combination of screens, database entities, processes and functional components. We let you decide what you want to include your app and how big it should be. In practice you’ll typically determine the size of an application based on your use case, desired user experience as well as app design, model complexity and app maintenance considerations.
