Hi,
You can buy User cal licence for the users, and choose Sql server standard 2014 version. But you can also downgrade it to SS 2012 and this is depending on your needs only.

Hi,

From SQL Server 2012, Microsoft changed the licences model. Depending on your requirement, you can refer the link to determine which version you want.

Refer Features supported by SQL Server Edition 2012

Thanks,

SQL Server 2008 and 2008R2 are already in the extend support period. You should think in SQL Server 2014 or at least SQL Server 2012. The licensing price is the same for both versions.

What are your needs in terms of features?

You can still buy Sql server 2014 and then downgrade it to SS 2008, which means you can still use SS 2008 instead.

Again, for SQL SERVER STANDARD 2008, is it better to buy the regular version of this or the processor based version?

To start with SQL Standard regular version is better, and you can install it without license and purchase it within 30 days.
