Maximum Number of Concurrent Users

Dear All,

Can anyone tell the maximum number of concurrent users that can work on SAP Business One. More specifically, can we implement SAP Business One for an organisation with 50 to 60 concurrent users.

    SAP B1 license is not for concurrent user but it is a named user.

    1 professional license or limited type license can be used by 2 persons in the two different PCs but both users must use the same user code. So, each professional or limited type license is assigned to one user code only.

    E.g .if you purchase 5 professional licenses, then you can only assign the license to 5 user code. The user code can be used by 10 persons in 10 different PCs.

    Dear Khurram,

    I hope you have the whole picture presented here. There may not have a absolute cap for maximum concurrent users for B1. However, B1 is designed for average 25 concurrent users due to the majority of B1 customers are small businesses.

    You could have 100 concurrent users working. But for 50-60 users always actively using B1, your B1 performance will become an issue sooner or later.

    Until HANA is available, you may need wait a while to implement.

    I agree with Johan Hakkesteegt. Consult a DB specialist, it really comes down to the number of transactions. The real bottle neck in the a Database system is the hard drives and their configuration. The hard drive is the last mechanical device in computers, which is why they take so long. If you can afford it, solid state will probably help out, but you will need quite a few of them. Then the consultant will need to analyze the Database transactions to figure out how to break up the file structure. It gets pretty complicated, and hence the need for a DB specialist (particularly a DB specialist that is an expert in the database you are using.).

    The HANA concept is pretty interesting, but it is an appliance that is also an additional cost. Still in quite a young stage right now. HANA essentially removes the bottle neck of the hard drives and is an in memory database and only uses disks for persistence.
