    Generally speaking, MSA and WarmStandby are standard options with all SRS installs (ie, there are no separate licensing req's for MSA or WarmStandby).


    Having said that ... you'll need to talk with your SAP sales rep on actual licensing costs for your environment, eg:

    - SAP applications (using ASE as a runtime backend) have a DR solution that comes with a limited-use license for SRS

    - there may be some different options with the 'Edge' license ('Edge' licenses may limit you to only using WarmStandby, but I'm not 100% sure)

    - you may be able to get a reduced license cost for the ASE instances that are used solely as the 'standby' dataserver in a SRS/WarmStandby setup

    Minimum version of ASE or minimum version of SRS?

    Actually, doesn't really matter ... any ASE/SRS versions currently available for download can support warm standby and/or MSA replication.

    my actual question is: do we have any such cost efficient edition where we do not want MSA, only single standby required so i have to pay less.


    whether all the editions cost same for single standby replication or MSA replication ?


    MSA replication is not something for which an organization needed to pay more compared to configure single stnadby?

    • For Replication Server both WS and MSA are supported out of the box.

      Licensing is for RS and that covers both WS and MSA.

      So you could have WS for databases on one set of servers and MSA for other databases on another set of servers.

      RS has other options which may need additional licenses e.g. for replication from/to DB2/MSSQL/Oracle etc.

    The default edition of Replication Server will do both MSA and warmstandby replication, in addition to table replication and all the other functionality.

    If you are referring to a Standby ASE server, which can be switched to if the primary ASE is unavailable, that is a question on a different product, ASE, which does offer a Standby license (type SF).

    Replication Server has no limit on how many MSA / warmstandby / table replication connections you create (at least not to my knowledge), the only limit would be the CPU, cores and disk required to run them, this is what will determine how many Replication Server licenses and which hardware you should consider.
