I believe it has quite a lot of refugees from Slack, Mattermost,
Hipchat etc

You can sign up for a online trial free for a period I think, or grab a
docker copy, and try it for yourself

It has its faults and foibles but I have been using it in a couple of
low volume situations for a good few years now (about version 0.20?)

It does use Mongo for the DB and there is some stuff in the foros &
github about the licencing for it (can't remember where now)

Online chat/video is a crowded space with everyone jostling for
position and a slice of the action because it will be the eventual
death of email, and all the big players want to control that. They will
buy up most smaller startups to stop any competition.

I believe the big battle currently is Teams v Slack. M$ are bleeding
them dry, because they can.

Rocket are pretty Open Source - the boss is a big believer.

Anyways, try it. But as ever, Caveat Emptor !!
