Are we allowed to use the DM server on a public web server?
My question is about the following: when downloading the binaries, I have to agree with a license that states (under 'License Grant'): to install and use the Products solely for Customerís internal business operations .
When downloading the source code (GPL) and building from that, the resulting binaries have the same non-GPL license included in the zip file.
Does this mean that I am not allowed to deploy the server on my publicly accessible web server?
So my question is not about redistributing the server, but about its usage on a server where e.g. anonymous-non-internal-business-people would have access to the web site powered by the SpringSource DM Server.
Either way, thank you for creating such a great product!!

Yes, you allowed to use the dm Server on a public web server!
Using dm Server to run applications for your business on your own infrastructure or rented infrastructure is definitely a use case permitted by the license. SpringSouce dm Server is designed to power public facing websites so you are certainly allowed to "deploy the dm Server on a publicly accessible web server" to run your applications for "anonymous-non-internal-business-people."
I'm glad you like dm Server so much. Good luck with your deployments.
