    SQL Server Licensing

      Has anyone else received this information?


      Microsoft will require Enterprise Edition licensing for all  SQL Server

      databases running on Virtual Hosts (VMware).  This has been discussed at

      length with Microsoft executive management.  They stand firm in their

      requirement for Enterprise Edition.


      All VMware servers running

      Standard Edition SQL Server (either CPU or CAL based licenses) must be

      upgraded to the CPU based Enterprise Edition price model.


      This has been presented to the higher ed management for the state of tn.
