Please be aware that the content in SAP SQL Anywhere Forum will be migrated to the SAP Community in June and this forum will be retired.

As has been discussed in other questions, the SQL Anywhere Web Edition has been discontinued in SQL Anywhere 16.

If you use/used the SQL Anywhere Web Edition, I am interested in your answers to the following questions:

  1. What kinds of application did/do you use with the Web Edition?
  2. Are the applications used for in-house systems, or deployed to customers?
  3. How many instances of the Web Edition did/do you run?
  4. What would you have used (or will you use) instead of the SQL Anywhere Web Edition?

Thank you in advance.

As I know, modern web apps demand horizontal scalability. SA WEB don't offer it, but posgresql as I know offer solution for scalability and also has relatively good sql engine.

Thank you, Alexey.

SQL Anywhere does have support for horizontal read-only scale-out ( Although not included in the SQL Anywhere Web Edition, it was available as a paid option.

For write-heavy workloads, multiple SQL Anywhere Web Edition servers can be setup in a horizontal sharding configuration.
