You are of course free to move to any other solution, or
interface with any other database out there.

Mnesia may not meet your needs, but seeing as you don't
have to pay a dime for it, and Ericsson does not force you
to use it, I fail to see how this should inconvenience you

The basho guys, the Dukes of Erl, et al, do marvellous work,
but focus on the stuff they need, just like Ericsson does.
That's a good strategy if you want to stay in business...

The wonderful thing about Open Source is that they let you share
the fruits of their labour (and expenses!). If it does what you
need, great. Otherwise, you are free to search for some other
community that offers you better components for free, or perhaps
even spend some money on some of the many commercially available
components out there. You can even do all of the above at the
same time.
