Hi,

Quick question? Why SQL Enterprise? And just to check, 64-bit editions of each?

SQL Standard 2008R2 has a memory limit of 64GB, but Windows 2008 standard has a memory limit of 32GB if memory is correct.

So unless you need the features of Enterprise or from some business takeover/buy-out/whatever you've been gifted an Enterprise licence, I'd suggest Standard Edition.

In the past, on 32bit editions, it was necessary to use Windows Enterprise to access additional ram.
