>What is the exact definition of "Enterprise-class"?
"costs lots more than it should"
"has lots of check boxes on the feature list"
"may require a consultant to implement it"
"is sold by a sales rep that gets commission"
"insecure IT decision makers will feel better about their purchase"
enterprise class doesn't mean anything. there is no standard definition -
it's a made up marketing term.
it means whatever you want it to. but maybe you already knew that and were
just asking for peoples own personal definitions. bah.

I've never really understood the definition of "Enterprise-class"
either. I think it means being extremely scalable, the ability to span
across multiple servers in multiple locations (geographically), and the
ability for multiple other systems to communicate with each other. Am I
wrong on this? What is the exact definition of "Enterprise-class"? I work
for an enterprise and we use multiple languages for different purposes -
does that count? I'd be interested to hear people's definitions.
