All software developed by the Apache Software Foundation (ASF) is
provided at zero cost under the Apache License version 2. [1]

It is up to you to determine if that license meets your needs (I would
be surprised if it didn't but that is not my call to make).

See above. The ASF does not sell licenses to use its software.

Support is available for these products via this users mailing list
although there are no guarantees as to the quality of the advice
provided nor are there any guarantees regarding response time.

Numerous third parties do sell support for ASF software. I do not know
off-hand who sells support for the products you are interested in.
