.."There are many reasons why people choose to go with open source. For Weaviate, open source, or rather open core, was chosen as a mechanism for transparency towards customers and users.
Perhaps surprisingly, van Luijt noted Weaviate is not necessarily looking for contributors. That would be nice to have, but the main purpose being open source serves is enabling audits. When clients ask their experts to audit Weaviate, being open source enables this.
Weaviate is available both as Software-as-a-Service and on-premises. Counter to conventional wisdom, it seems most Weaviate users are interested in on-premise deployments."
