I want to purchase sql server 2008, but I can't figure out their licensing for certain.
I develop for my own hosted websites. It looks like I need the web edition:
A low-TCO, scalable, and manageable database option for web hosters and end customers looking to deploy publicly facing web applications and services
$15 per proc
per month (SPLA)
What is this $15 per proc per month? Do they really bill me monthly for using this? And what is per processor?
I have one web server and will have a backup webserver and raid drives.
What does it mean "Example $3,500"?
My current needs don't have anywhere near a million records, but someday maybe. Will this handle growth well?
I'm just a one person shop. I develop from one machine. So I don't need a bunch of seat licenses.
Can someone help me with this who understands this stuff?
