While Enterprise can be implemented for unlimited users across multiple servers and includes clustering and failover capabilities, Edge BI is restricted to a single server and a user count more appropriate for mid-sized organizations.
The SAP BusinessObjects Edge BI platform is fully compatible with SAP BusinessObjects Enterprise, SAP's enterprise business intelligence suite.
