We have installed an application, which records transactions on a local dbms (sql server express), on each branches.

We have around 100+ branches and the data will be uploaded to the central server once a day. There will be around 1GB of data per day.

The central server will also maintain a TCP/IP connection to all the branches for real-time monitoring.

The central server will be used for centralized monitoring and reporting for all the branches. Currently, I don't know how many users will be accessing the monitoring and reporting applications.

Please recommend which Windows version/edition to use.

Thanks

That might be a prime candidate for Microsoft Azure SQL server.
