Base Product

The base product is available in two versions: Enterprise Server and Server. Originally, these two versions were referred to as the Server and the Workgroup Server. The Enterprise Server is the full-function version of the RDBMS. It contains all of the base features mentioned in Table 1.1, and it can support all of the Oracle options and data cartridges. The Server version is less feature-rich; it is designed to compete at the low end. The Server version does not support all the functionality of the Enterprise Server, it cannot be configured with all of the options and data cartridges, and, in some cases, it may be limited by the number of users or the size of the machine on which it can run. However, the Server version carries a lower price per user than the Enterprise Server, and may be attractive for that reason.
