Microsoft SQL Server 2012: A dozen features you might have missed

Yum! Now more flavors of Microsoft SQL Server Enterprise Edition

Source:  Fotolia

No longer are enterprise customers confined to one flavor of Enterprise Edition. Microsoft SQL Server Enterprise Edition now gives you two choices. Choose between an Enterprise Edition that has a core-based license or one that has a server/client access license (CAL). CAL licensing requires you to license each client or device, and is a good choice for administrators who know the exact number of devices that will connect to the server. Core-based licensing requires you to license all cores in a physical environment, and is a better option for administrators who don't know the exact number of devices that will be connecting to the server, that have Internet-facing workloads or that have systems that integrate with external-facing workloads
