Licensing SQL Server in a Virtual Environment
Author: Peter Ward Date Posted: 1/16/2012 9:48:20 PM
With SQL Server now fully supporting virtualisation, architectural and licensing discussions concerning SQL Server are now common place. However, consistently, the rights and terms of licensing SQL Server in a virtual environment are commonly misunderstood, and worse still, architectural choices are sometimes made based on these incorrect assumptions. Not only that, but both capability and licensing is evolving with the next release SQL Server 2012. In this session we’ll cover virtualization licensing for SQL Server today, plus how that looks in the future with SQL Server 2012. We’ll spend time up on the whiteboard talking through some common scenarios plus sharing best practices from other customers locally.
