hi! License question: I'm shortlisting software and tools for the tech stack of a new data portal with collaborative ETL/ELT capabilities and a new SaaS product focussing on the T. Airbyte could be a good candidate for the EL part. I expect we would need to deploy and host it ourselves, rather than using the cloud offering. Business models, when we get to that point, are likely to focus on data distribution and usage, collaboration features and the transformation capabilities, not on offering "Airbyte as a service". However, it's unavoidable that there will be overlapping capabilities between the two, as we'd be exposing some of Airbyte's core capabilities to users, as part of the larger service. What do you say: is this clearly within what's permitted, clearly outside of it, is it a gray area, or would you need more information?

We haven't decided yet. For the data portal we're considering a cost-based model based on resource usage. For the transformation service, we're thinking of a subscription-based SaaS model with business/enterprise tiers for private collaborations and enterprise security and system integration features.

In that case, you will most probably need a paid license with us
