I am trying to figure out how to count users for Workspace.
With Connect I have 5 Users, 5 Mailboxes, Unlimited Aliases.
With Workspace I seem to be getting a user count of 300-1000 a year?!?
Company A (My company) has 5 users who setup and maintain Workspace.
1 user sets up 300 workspaces so that EACH workspace is only visible to a single client.
To make workspace 1 visible only to that client, I create a unique login
Client A, Project 1 can only see Workspace A Login "CAP1"
Client B, Project 1 can only see Workspace B Login "CBP1"
Client C, Project 1 can only see workspace C Login "CCP1"
Client C, Project 2 can only see workspace D Login "CCP2"
Client B, Project 2 Can only see Workspace E Login "CBP2"
And so on.......
Client C, for legal reasons, can't know that Client B is working on Workspace B. Client C CAN and DO know that Client B is working on Workspace E. It seems that the legal requirements mean that I need to purchase a LARGE amount of licenses, making it financially unfeasible, compared to our current system of using the Wiki build into Mac OSX 10.6 Snow Leopard Server. It is not as flexable as workspace, but spending $9000 - 300 users is not a cost I can Justify. Am I wrong in how I am counting users? I am looking at about 50 or so total clients, but each client/workspace/project combination makes each one unique, and a new license is required? Checking for overlap & exclusiveness would be difficult, and if it was done wrong could result in fines or a lawsuit. Any Ideas?

you will need a license for every user who will access pages stored on Workspace. That means one license for every one of your clients.
What level of access do these clients need? Would a read-only access be sufficient? In one of future versions, we plan to introduce a "sharing with external users" feature. It will let you share Workspace content with external people, who don't have a user account on your system, don't consume a license, but their access rights are limited - read-only or something like that. Is this feature going to be useful for you?
