I spent the better part of one hour yesterday talking to 2 different SAP sales reps who were very responsive but could not (yet) answer what looked like a simple question from a willing customer:
Say that I have a database-backed website, running SQL Anwyhere of course, that I'd like to host in the cloud on one single AWS EC2
Amazon reports that
Say that I don't need any fancy option and I can live with a Workgroup Edition.
How many chips do I need to license?
Sales (Belgium) did not know and need to get back to me.
Now, for my own clarification, I fired up one
The server console log reports this:
Am I correct in assuming that a 1-chip licence is all that's required, despite the 4 vCPUs/logical processors?
Yes, you are correct. A single CPU license would be sufficient in this case. SQL Anywhere Workgroup Edition (which supports a maximum of 2 physical CPUs) would be sufficient.
