SAP SQL Anywhere, on-demand edition 1.0 SP 6 » Cloud servers

Maximum number of databases per cloud server

The number of databases that can be added to a cloud server depends on the number of databases that must run concurrently on the cloud server, as well as whether the databases are configured to auto-stop.

  • Number of databases that you can run concurrently on a cloud server

    The maximum number of databases that can run concurrently on a cloud server:

    • 100 databases per server (64-bit computer).

    • 25 databases per server (32-bit computer)

  • Number of databases that you can add to a server

    The number of databases that can be added to a server depends on the number of databases that must run concurrently and whether the databases are configured to autostop.

    You can add databases to a cloud server until any of the following limits are reached:

    • The maximum number of concurrently running databases for the server has been reached.

    • The number of databases not configured to autostop equals the maximum number of concurrently running databases for the cloud server.

    • The cloud server has 1000 databases.

  • Limited number of cloud servers per host

    The maximum number of cloud servers that can be created on a host is 9.

Example

If you expect only 20 out of 500 databases to run at the same time, then you could add 500 databases to a cloud server. But, if you expect 200 of the 500 databases to run at the same time, then split the databases up between more cloud servers.

If none of your databases are configured to autostop, then you can add up to 100 databases to a cloud server on a 64-bit computer. If almost all of your databases are configured to autostop, then you can add up to 1000 databases to a cloud server.
