HI guys.

I need help. I want to buy MSQL server 2014 enterprise edition and want to find out the best licensing that I can use. Here is my scenario

I have 2 application which will be accessing the database via my LAN to the server. application one has 70 users, application 2 has 30 users. the two application will be accessing the databases via ODBC users, that sa, for app 1 and sa1 for app 2.

does it mean that I need 100 CALs licenses or I will need 2 CALs for the two sa and sa1 since my users will be multiplexed in sa and sa1.

I am I correct in this assumption or I am wrong please advice
