we are trying to understand the possibility given by Qlikview Server and need some documentations in order to better understand what we can/can't do with our Small Business Edition (QVServer + 5 CALs).
The reason why i post this question is that many times, when encountering a problem, we don't even know if it doesn't work why we haven't correctly set one or more parameters or if it's due to our license configuration.
When it comes to questions about "Server limitations" or "what server would fit best my requirements" my first answer is always the same: check your actual needs and budget with your QlikTech partner or representative.
After that, it all depends on what do you want to do, how many users do you need and what type of licenses are you thinking of using. In the past there were limitations in regards to data volumes, but they don't apply now, you can move the same number of records in the SBE or the EE. Do you need Publisher? It's and additional license that is applicable on the EE, and not the SBE. Similar with clustering, sharing objects...
Going back to your original question, there are no differences in settings or configuration between licenses, other than the license itself (you cannot set up Publisher if you don't have a Enterprise Edition license, for example). Or said in different words, you can do the same with the different licenses of server in regards to documents, number of reports the users are able to see, Accesspoint configuration, etc. Actually, the Management Console is the same for both (EE and SBE).
I have a customer with SBE and 5 User CALs. these 5 Users CALs are access all documents available in the server. Today our customers wants to develop more QVWs but provide access to diferent companies's users. The users from company A cannot see the documents of company B and vice versa.
What do you think about this? What would be the best solution in this situation?
