Overview of Editions of QlikView Server

QlikView Server comes in different editions designed for different organizations and purposes.
The currently applied license determines the QlikView Server features available. 


The various editions of QlikView Server are:
Edition Description
QlikView Enterprise Edition (EE) Server QlikView EE Server is designed to be used in large and complex deployments and provides features such as unlimited documents, server-based collaboration, integration with third-party security systems, server clustering, and cluster licensing. The minimum configuration of a QlikView EE Server is five Named User Client Access Licenses (CALs).
QlikView Small Business Edition (SBE) Server QlikView SBE Server is designed to be used in smaller deployments. The minimum configuration of a QlikView SBE Server is five Named User CALs.
QlikView Information Access Server (IAS) QlikView IAS is a QlikView Server that is licensed for an uncapped number of users and a single QlikView document. The IAS may be licensed with multiple QlikView documents for an additional fee. QlikView IAS runs in anonymous mode, must be publically accessible without authentication (on the public Internet) and, must not be placed behind a firewall. No QlikView client program can access QlikView IAS. The user interface must be built by the end user either manually or by using QlikView WorkBench.

Note: There is no license lease from QlikView IAS.
QlikView Extranet Server (QES) QES allows users to deploy QlikView documents to their extranet in order to permit authorized third parties located outside of the firewall to view the QlikView documents. Use of this server inside the LAN is not allowed. The server can be deployed with a combination of Session and Usage CALs. QES supports mobile clients and can be deployed in clustered environments. The AJAX client or a customized AJAX client can be used via QlikView WorkBench, which is included in QES.
QlikView Test Server QlikView Test Server is a server license that provides an environment separate from production to use for data validation, application testing, and preparation/migration of QlikView documents to new versions and/or releases of QlikView. QlikView Test Server comes in two editions, QlikView EE Test Server and QlikView SBE Test Server, both of which have the same features and limitations as the corresponding production servers. In addition, the watermark “Test” is superimposed on all charts and added to all object captions.

Note: There is no license lease from QlikView Test Server.
