- Developer edition is for developers who want to experiment with container-based stateful apps in cloud. Robin DE is available for deployment on AWS with a single node and allows you to run stateful apps with separate compute and storage. You can deploy your first application in a single click and then spin up clusters in minutes. You can deploy Cassandra or MongoDB, Elasticsearch and ELK, MySQL or your own app (except Oracle and Hadoop (Cloudera, Hortonworks).
- The Community edition is perfect for small DevOps teams who want to experiment with container-based apps and get started with RCP. Robin CE can be deployed on AWS with up five nodes. This is great for small distributed dev/test apps. Robin CE is optimized for seamless user experience. It comes with all RCP features, allowing you to save money with decoupled compute storage and guaranteed performance. Everything can be deployed in Developer Edition plus Hadoop (Cloudera, Hortonworks excluded).
Jay Lyman, principal analyst at 451 Research, stated that Robin Systems made RCP available to the community and developers. These new editions could also be used by organizations to address the Big Data technology and applications challenges, increasing the ability of nodes to aggregate compute and storage resources. The developer and community editions are free, but normal AWS usage fees apply.
