I have some more questions regarding SQL licensing that need your advice, can you kindly explain me about Open License(OLP) and Developer Edition of SQL server.
a. If I have a team of around 20 members with 5 database developers, and 3 servers installed with SQL server for developing. The servers are only used for my team to develop software only, not production.
Which license type is suitable for my team(OLP of Standard/Workgroup Edition or licenses of Developer Edition)?
+ Can I buy 3 licenses of SQL server Developer Edition to install on my 3 servers? If yes, do I need to buy any other licenses
for the database developers to access the servers?
+ or the SQL server Developer Edition can only be installed on developer computer? Then I must use other kinds of license like OLP of Standard/Workgroup Edition to install on 3 servers and buy CAL for my developers?
b. I see in a price list these records:
1.SQL Svr Standard Edtn 2008 Sngl OLP NL 992 USD
2.SQL Svr Standard Edtn 2008 Sngl OLP NL 1 Proc 6,339 USD
+ What are the differences between those 2 item? how many processors or servers can 1 license of item.1 can be applied?
+ Item.1 requires CAL for devices, users to access; Item.2 does not, is it correct?
+ Those 2 items should be used for production servers, and development team do not need to use them, am I right? Read more...
