CPU / Core-based Pricing Model
CPU-based price calculation rests on the number of CPUs arranged in order of the number of cores that are to be enabled to use the application and/or database software. Some products require no further access licenses (e.g. compare with Microsoft Client Access License, CAL). This means that the number of clients who may access the application and/or database server is unlimited.
User-based Price Model
This model counts the number of Concurrent Users (Seats) authorized to simultaneously access the application and/or database, independently of the CPUs on which the database or application server software runs.
A User (Seat) is defined as an instance of application software running on a stationary or mobile client and which maintains a connection to the application and/or database. Whether the user is a person or a machine is irrelevant.
