  1. Jose, to confirm my understanding.  is MobiLink Synchronization Server include in all these editions?  Thanks,  Mark

  2. Is such a document available for SQL Anywhere 16 as well? Afaik, at least the core limitation of the Workgroup / Edge Edition doesn't exist there, (I remember a CPU limitation of 2). Unfortunately, the corresponding links in the documentation for the older versions all point into retired sybase.com URLs.

  3. Core limitation is also for Workgroup/ Edge Edition v.16 and later - in max. for 8 cores (we need to remember, that v. 12 had SAP valid maintenance only to the end of 2016). Current conversion from old metric to new one looks like - 1 Chip/CPU = 4 Cores. Of course that CPU could have more cores, but calculation of metric looks like that and software doesn't go properly if you buy 4 cores, but you have more cores on procesor. We need remember about another thing, that the minimum cores, which we need to buy for SQL Any license is 4 cores (I mean about metric "cores" for bundle pack SQL Anywhere Edge edition or Advanced edition).

    Mobilink Synchronization Server - I see that option, when I run trial version of SAP SQL Anywhere Developer Edition v.16, you will also have access to Ultralite and Relay Server.

     

    1. Thank you very much for your comment, Paula.

      However, it doesn't match the offer in SAP Store [https://www.sapstore.com/solutions/99035/SAP-SQL-Anywhere-%28v16%29] which still shows chip- based licensing for V.16, nor my own experience with a V.16 (build 2322) server which indicates that the Workgroup Edition actually does use all 12 cores of the 2 CPUs in that machine.

      select * from sa_eng_properties ()
       where PropName like '%Lic%t%' or Propname like 'Num%icalproc%' or PropName = 'ServerEdition'
      order by PropName

  4. Hi Volker,

    Sorry for postponed answer. I don't know, why it's described like that in SAP store.

    I based on my experience and this helpful page http://www.sqlanywhere.info/EN/sql-anywhere/sql-anywhere-licensing.html

    About this 4 cores, you will find information from page above: "In 2016, SAP replaced the per-CPU model with per-Cores, by multiples of 4".
