Why has SAPDB been released as Open Source?

Quote>

SAP believes that times have changed, that databases are becoming part of the basic technology infrastructure, and as such, they need not be proprietary or complex. SAP sees that the time is right to drive open-source development of database technology and contribute to this effort by making SAPDB Open Source. Open-source development is revolutionizing the way software is created, as shown by the success of Linux, and SAP - which is already providing the first comprehensive e-business solution on Linux - wants to encourage this development.

Quote>

There are other open-source databases - why SAPDB? Quote>

SAPDB is a state-of-the art, SQL-based, industrial-strength database system. SAPDB is platform-independent, so users can deploy it for a wide array of projects. SAPDB is highly scalable, easy to use and maintain, and provides full transaction support. Companies can deploy SAPDB together with SAP applications for a complete out-of-the-box business solution. SAPDB also goes beyond relational processing by offering object orientation as well as support for managing unstructured data. This comprehensive set of features and their availability as Open Source will benefit the entire database development community.

Quote> How many people are developing SAPDB? Quote>

Since mid-1997, SAP has made considerable investments into SAPDB, which is maintained and continuously enhanced by a dedicated team of about 100 SAP developers.

Quote> Where can I get SAPDB? Quote>

SAPDB software can be downloaded, together with a sample database.

Quote> With which database release did the Open Source era begun? Quote>

With SAPDB Release 7.2

Quote> Where can I find the latest information about SAPDB? Quote>

SAP is launching an online community at the SAP DB homepage for developers and users to share and exchange enhancements to SAPDB, take part in mailing lists, newsgroups, and chat forums, download software updates, share tips about the software, and locate service and support offerings provided by SAP or other organizations. Those interested can subcribe to two mailing lists:
To receive the latest information on SAPDB as soon as they are available subscribe to the mailing list sapdb-announce@listserv.sap.com.
The mailing list maxdb@lists.mysQl.com is the News Forum of the SAPDB Community. You can use this address for discussions and exchanging experiences with other people interested in SAPDB. This mailing list will be used as the basis for a newsgroup.

Quote> How many SAPDB installations are there? Quote>

Currently, there are about 2000 SAPDB installations with more than 1000 customers running, not included SAP liveCache and Content Server installations, which are also SAPDB products.

Quote> Are there restrictions in terms of the number of database users or of the database size? Quote>

No. SAPDB runs successfully on large, medium-sized, and small installations.

Quote> Is this a special limited version? Quote>

No. The software released as Open Source is the unlimited and current release as used by customers of SAP solutions.

Quote> How much do you have to pay for licenses, service, and administration when you use SAPDB? Quote>

You don’t have to pay for SAPDB database licenses. When you use SAPDB as a database for mySAP.com solutions, you pay a mandatory maintenance fee but thanks to the easy administration and low space reQuirements of SAPDB, additional costs are kept to a minimum.

Quote> What about customers that have already purchased SAPDB? Quote>

The availability as open-source software does not affect existing SAPDB customers' licensing and maintenance agreements with SAP. New SAPDB installations in combination with SAP applications will be handled by a new business model, which only charges for service and support. For non-SAP applications, customers have the option of purchasing service and support offerings from SAP or other organizations for a fee, which is a common business model for open-source software.

Quote> Which database version shall I use? Quote>

SAPDB version 7.4 is the latest official release of SAPDB software. All new users of SAP DB are recommended to start with version 7.4, since it offers a number of valuable new features.
Nevertheless, version 7.3 will continue being developed for those using it in productive systems.
