Back in September I downloaded this 120 day copy to my Dell Multi-CPU Server.
Working great but will soon run out on the license trial period.
I want to upgrade this version to SQL 2005 Enterprise with 25 licenses.
My question is the following; Is MS SQL 2000 Trail Copy a wide-open version that utilizes all the processors in my server (Server has 8 Xeon CPUs), therefore giving me full performance?
My next question is; If I am expecting at least the same performance as SQL 2000 on my server and upgrade to SQL 2005, what license model do I need to purchase? Standard? Enterprise? I am needing at least 25 licenses for my users. I don't know how to spec out the Processor license?
I want the most performance that I am seeing now with my SQL 2000 Trail Copy --- Not sure how that compares to the SQL 2005 Model?
Very confused from Microsoft purchasing model....once again.
