Editions and Licensing Models

SQL Anywhere has different editions (Edge, advanced…) and licensing models (per core, per named user, per device...). Some of them were recently deprecated by SAP, others are still valid. This may create some confusion as to which edition, type of license and capacity is the right fit for a given project.

SQL Anywhere

SQL Anywhere is a relational database providing multiple advanced features.
