SQL Server 2008 R2 Edition Differences
Posted on 2013-09-24
My company wants to upgrade from SQL Server 2008 R2 Express Edition with Advanced Services to the 2008 R2 Standard Edition. Before making any purchases, I just want to verify a few things:
1) The Dell server is running Windows Small Business Server 2011. Will the "SQL Server 2008 R2 Standard Edition for Small Business" qualify as a valid edition upgrade? I would normally assume it would, but given the cost of this product, I don't want to make any assumptions.
2) Besides price, what's the difference between the Standard Edition and the Standard Edition for Small Business?
