Answer  T1:
How do you calculate the number of server and client licenses when BRAUMAT is to be connected to an SQL database?

If a "per processor" license is implemented, it doesn't matter how many data sources supply the SQL database or how many users access the database via Microsoft Access or Excel or similar for evaluation.

Otherwise the following holds:
Every data source that feeds the database counts as 1 CAL (Client Access License). Each application (Microsoft Excel, Access etc.) that queries the database also counts as 1 CAL. If two BRAUMAT servers are to be used with communication to the SQL server and three PCs for evaluations, then you need 5 CALs.

The CALs also differ in type. A Device CAL is valid per device connected, a User CAL is valid per user connected. Device CALs are more practical here, because then an unlimited number of users can access the SQL database.
