Microsoft SQL Server 2012 Licenses

Aventis Systems offers Microsoft SQL Server 2012 in the following editions:

  • Enterprise Edition for mission critical applications and large scale data warehousing.
  • Standard Edition for basic database, reporting and analytics capabilities.
  • We offer SQL Server 2012 in Server + CAL and Per Core licensing models:

  • Server + CAL: Each server running SQL Server software requires a server license. Each user/device accessing a licensed SQL Server requires a SQL Server CAL. Our server + CAL options come with 5 or 10 CALs to offer a lower entry point cost for incremental deployments. Please view our SQL Server CALs for additional users or devices.
  • Per Core: Unlimited CALs makes this the perfect model for customers that are unable to count users/devices. All cores on a physical server must be licensed. A minimum of four core licenses is required for each physical processor on a server. Please note that virtual servers, as well as single core, dual core, and AMD processors with more than six cores have specific licensing requirements. Unlimited CALs for customers that are unable to count users/devices. Please inquire if you have any questions.
