pricing of Workgroup and ESE

P: n/a
Hello,

I need to find the pricing for WGE and ESE(old name) If anyone can point me
in the right direction.

Also, are DUO chips counted as two, like the xeons from Intel?

Thanks in advance

Intel Core Duo and AMD dual core chips are counted as one CPU. Quad core
chips are counted as two CPU's.

I believe there is a slightly different formula for dual core Power PC and
Sun chips, but not 100% sure.

Go to the "Software on-line catalog".

When you find the product, you can click on "View Pricing" and it will
show you the list prices. Please note, each Intel Xeon CPU core = 50
"value units". So a server with 2 dual-core Xeon CPUs = 200 value units.

OK, let me be even MORE clear. The client bought a new machine since the
one they had prior had "topped out". They now need the software to run
their apps. They are currently running ESE 7.2 . They want to be in a
position to have a supported version.

The machine they purchased has : Win 2003 server, core 2 duo xeon 2
processors 2 G mem hot swap SATA 2 320 G

[...]

10 grand seems a lot (including "per seat") licenses in fact it is too much
for them to bear. There must be a way to get them on V9. They have web
apps that connect, but no more than 6 apps.
The prices you're quoting (which appear to be from BEFORE the switch to
"value units" sound on-par with my experience. And just so you know,
those are per "CPU", and your server has 2 CPUs (even though they are
dual-core. Confusing, yes and this is why IBM switched to "value
units"). So it's more like $20k.

But you also need to consider what you need: Do you really need WSE?
You've only got 4 cores, and 2 Gb RAM. Unless you're planning to
radically increase these numbers, Express (or even Express-C, with
subscription support) should be plenty.
