Frequently Asked Questions
When we say free, we mean free. No hidden fees, no commitment, no credit card required. The free edition includes everything you need to design, build, and deploy demos, prototypes, or small applications. It includes a deployment environment for each application that provides access to up to 10 internal users. Just sign up, get started right away, and build as many applications as you want.
Typically, you will upgrade if you need more than 10 internal users, more than one environment per application, or if you need more enterprise-level features and services such as more deployment options, formal Service Level Agreements (SLAs), etc. Upgrading is easy – you’ll keep your user account, and all the apps that you have already built. Simply contact us to sign up for one of our other plans, and you’ll be running in no time.
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 these 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 in your app and how big it should be. In practice, you’ll determine the size of an application based on your use case and desired user experience, as well as app design, model complexity, and app maintenance considerations.
There are no limitations to what you can build with the Professional edition of the Mendix platform, compared to the Enterprise edition. The Enterprise edition adds more advanced deployment and management features to the platform like support for continuous integration / continuous deployment, private cloud deployment, and a Platinum SLA. You can always upgrade your platform subscription from Professional to Enterprise.
Yes. If you decide to use the Mendix Cloud to deploy your applications, the cloud resources needed to deploy your first 5 applications are included in the subscription price.
Mendix identifies two different types of users: Internal users are individuals employed by your organization, external users are not employed by your organization and only access the applications you run incidentally (e.g. customers). To provide you with as much flexibility as possible, you can combine internal and external users on your platform. If you buy a 50 internal user platform, you can provision 50 internal users or 500 external users or any mix in between like 20 internal + 300 external.
There are no limitations on the number or the complexity of the applications you can build and deploy using the Mendix Platform when you select the Community, Pro, or Enterprise Platform editions.
Yes. You decide where to deploy your applications. Mendix supports deploying applications to the Mendix Cloud, on premise and (if you select the Enterprise Edition) any private cloud. You also have the flexibility to deploy to multiple environments (multi-cloud), deploying a number of applications to the Mendix Cloud and others on premise or into a private cloud.
Most Mendix customers are looking to fundamentally change the way they build and deploy applications. That’s why we created a platform licensing model that has no limitations on the size, complexity, or number of applications that you can build using our technology. However, if you are only looking to create a single application, we still want to offer you the ability to leverage the full power of our platform. That’s what the single app license is for.
