We are considering to use couchbase as a part of out project , we have some questions about the different editions .
We found the following in the offcial document :
" Use of EE in development and test environments is free. EE requires a paid subscription for production use. "
Our question is how do couchbase determine whether the cluster is using in a prod environment ? In fact we do not need to use the newest features in our environments , we just focus on high-speed access and HA related , so seems the CE edition is more suitable for us ? but what will happen if we use the EE version in our env without a paid license ? will the cluster unavailable after a certain amount of time or some features can not be used ?
Couchbase is just used to store/retrieves session information in our plan , so which edition you suggest us to use ?
