We are a company with 5000 users across 3 sites in the US. We want to stand up Sharpoint 'Services' only on based on the CALs we purchased with Windows 2003 Server licenses. We will be standing it up with SQL Server 2008. What is the 'real deal'? Do we really need Enterprise or can we realistically get away with Standard?
The full break-down that MS has me looking at is here http://www.microsoft.com/sqlserver/2008/en/us/editions-compare.aspx
I greatly appreciate any advice on this subject.
