    SQL 2012 for Sims

    We are soon upgrading our Sims server, what do I need to buy in terms of software for it?

    We already have Windows 2008 R2 licenses but wondering what edition of SQL server 2012 I need or wether it is included in EES agreement?

    SQL can be added to your EES agreement, it isn't however part of the Core Desktop pack that most people get which is Windows, Office and a basic set of CALs.

    AFAIK you will need SQL Licensing (you can do it per CPU or per user or per device get the costs and work out the best value for money) and then CALs for SQL as appropriate. It will become ££ quite quickly I suspect.
