Zen Workgroup for Windows and PSQL Workgroup
The Actian Zen/PSQL Workgroup Editions provide high performance and data reliability for single- and multi-engine configurations with up to five users. See additional information below regarding Single Engine Installations and Multi Engine Installations.
- From 1 to 5 concurrent users.
- Every Workgroup engine and User Count Increases (UCI) authorization requires a key.
- Individual Workgroup keys will not authorize more than one system at a time.
- Individual UCI keys will not authorize more than one system at a time
- To apply the key to another system, you must first deauthorize it, then reauthorize on the other system.
The maximum number of concurrent users for PSQL or Zen Workgroups is 5. For installations requiring more users, purchase PSQL/Zen Enterprise Server.
Zen Workgroup is a 32-bit engine that is supported on both 32- and 64-bit Windows operating systems.
Single Engine Installations
If you need single or multiple users accessing one database, purchase a 1, 3 or 5-user Workgroup Edition for installation on a single system and install a Zen v13 Client on each of the other systems. Workgroup will work with both Windows and Linux Clients. Clients are available at no charge and do not require authorization. To increase the number of concurrent users, purchase a 1 or 2-user UCI and install it on the same system as the Workgroup engine.

When data resides on more than one system in a network it is useful to install multiple Workgroup engines. Multi-engine installations can be made up of single-user Workgroups, multi-user Workgroups or a combination of the two.
Example: If you have data on 3 systems and don't need more than one user per system accessing data, purchase 3 single-user Workgroups. The cost for this configuration is 3 x $100 = $300.
Example: If you have data on 3 systems and require three concurrent users per system (one local and two remote), purchase 3 three-user Workgroups. The cost for this configuration is 3 x $300 = $900.
To increase the number of users in a multi-Workgroup congfiguration, purchase a UCI for each system in the network where you want to add a user. It is not required that user counts be the same on each system in the network.
