Folks,

What are the major differences (besides price) between Workgroup server
and Enterprise Server Edition (ESE)?

Thanks.

Functionally, ESE adds:

* DB2 Connect functionality
- connect to DB2 for iSeries or zSeries
* Parallel support
- with DPF license, you can have multiple nodes
working on the same database.

However, the license is probably the biggest change - I'm not really up
with all the license details, but I understand that there is likely a
point where ESE is actually cheaper than WSE for some businesses based
on the license model. I think it has to do with the way they're
licensed - based on users (named or unnamed) vs CPUs. Of course, there
is also Workgroup Server Unlimited Edition which sits somewhere between
the two, I would imagine.
