AFAIK, its only free for your initial development work.  As soon as you 
deploy a production app, you have to get support, and as soon as you 
have a support contract, you can no longer run any free instances, 
except the lightweight 'express' version which is limited to very small 
databases with only a few connections and doesn't have any of the 
enterprise functions.
