Microsoft SQL Server 2012 CAL Edition
All users, internal and external, who are using data, whether that is developing, programming, reporting, or using an application, on a Microsoft SQL server must be licensed to access that server.
Microsoft has three types of licensing for Microsoft SQL Server 2012 Edition. Client Access Licenses (CALs) are a single license to access, query, display, or use the database on the SQL server in any way.
CALs work well for very small businesses where a limited number of people will use the SQL server database, or for groups or departments, where only a few people will have access to the server.
The other two types of licensing are designed for larger organizations, with core licensing tied to the server’s processor(s) and enterprise licensing, which gives unlimited access to the databases on your SQL server.
