You just use your C#, .NET and ASP.NET MVC stack with Mono on any supported
environment. You only need a license from Xamarin if you need to static
link the runtime with the application which isn't the case for common
applications. Only iOS has this real requirement.

As for the database, you can stick to any SGDB like MySQL, MariaDB,
PostgreSQL etc
