SQL Licensing - two databases, one server, eight users
Posted on 2013-06-14
I am going to be as general as possible, as looking for basic concepts:
I have a client who utilizes SQL server for two very different purchases/departments. Each dept has 4 people. Neither use is intensive, as far as utilization goes.
I am going to be setting up a new VM server, running Server 2008 (req) and SQL 2008.
How do I handle licensing?
Do I need to purchase 2 SQL server licenses, and 8 CALS?
Or 1 SQL Server and 8 CALS?
(Keep it general, please.)
