Microsoft SQL Server 2008 R2 Standard with 5 CAL

Bringing Your Business Back in Line with the Highest SQL Server Standards at a Far Better Price

If your business is working with Microsoft SQL Server 2008 R2 Standard, you may feel tempted to begin looking for a more recent SQL Server edition. After all, a lot has changed in operating systems over the last decade, and surely there’s more out there on a newer SQL Server to benefit your business.

For smaller businesses that are looking to maximize their data analysis within a limited budget simply, however, the answer isn’t necessary to change servers, it may be merely to add more users to the server that’s already in place.

Microsoft SQL Server 2008 R2 Standard offers plenty of attractive features for most small businesses, even so, many years after its initial release. The server is still able to provide the kind of overall performance and tools that create the opportunity to discover greater insights within data, especially when that data is being added and analyzed by more and more users.

If your business is working on a budget and needs basic SQL Server abilities, don’t waste money on a new server (which requires new and more expensive CALs and other licenses anyway). Instead, get more from your Microsoft SQL Server 2008 R2 Standard by adding more CALs to enable more expansive work within your office.

Is this not the Microsoft SQL Server product you’ve decided your business needs? No problem. Scan through our extensive list of SQL Server products, including all recent editions and all required CALs.

An SQL Server with the Features Your Small Business Needs

While a new server might sound attractive at first, it’s clear when reviewing the features found on Microsoft SQL Server 2008 R2 Standard that there’s plenty to attract users to continue working with the server you have on hand. Consider all of these features that every new user can enjoy:

  •    The capabilities necessary to handle all small business needs: Small businesses still have significant scalability and performance demands for their server, even if they aren’t as extensive as larger businesses. Microsoft SQL Server 2008 R2 Standard provides for these needs by allowing up to 4 CPUs, a maximum of 65 GB utilized for memory, and as much as 524 PB of for database size. Direct query of index views can also work faster and more effectively using the NOEXPAND hint.
  •    More high availability thanks to increased failover clusters: The Standard edition of Microsoft SQL Server 2008 R2 provides two failover cluster nodes, increasing the amount of high availability data and apps on the server. This allows users to work more effectively at all times.
  •    More reliable data regardless of high availability through database mirroring: With the expansion of high availability through the failover clusters, there can be a risk of data becoming inconsistent. That risk is alleviated by more advanced database mirroring, which uses redundant copies of data to make sure it is always correct.
  •    More efficient data storage through backup compression: Perhaps the most significant feature found on Microsoft SQL Server 2008 R2 Standard, which was novel in its day and remains incredibly useful, is the inclusion fo backup compression. This can reduce the size of backups up to 60%. Compression not only saves space on your server, it can make the server run faster and of course provide the room to backup more data more frequently, while also allowing for the database mirroring mentioned above.
  •    All the advanced development tools your business needs: While a functional server, as the features above described, is crucial for any and every business need, an SQL Server wouldn’t do much good if it didn’t include all the developing features a business needs that would justify that well-running system in the first place. Microsoft SQL Server 2008 R2 Standard includes all the tools required to develop data and data-focused solutions, including the use of Microsoft Visual Studio, IntelliSense, Business Intelligence Development Studio, and all the data querying capabilities a business needs. Brought together, Microsoft SQL Server 2008 R2 Standard provides a package of tools that remain effective for all data analysis needs for a small business, despite the age of the operating system.
  •    Excellent reporting abilities: Second only to development tools, reporting tools also need to age well. Those too are present and in good standing after all these years. Microsoft SQL Server 2008 R2 Standard includes the ability to work with more types of data reporting, including a map wizard that helps users report on geospatial data. There’s also the inclusion of the Office ribbon, which better organizes all your reporting tools and makes them easier to find.

Why Businesses Keep Choosing Microsoft SQL Server 2008 R2 Standard with 5 CAL

There are plenty of reasons for businesses to stick with their Microsoft SQL Server 2008 R2 Standard and merely add CALs to bring in more users, but to simplify why many companies make this choice, consider these three reasons:

  •    Tools that stand the test of time: No matter what your small business needs to gain from its SQL Server, the tools provided on Microsoft SQL Server 2008 R2 Standard have managed to remain current and capable of handling all the most recent SQL needs.
  •    A server that remains productive and stable today: The server is designed to work as effectively and efficiently today as it did when it was first released. With failover clusters, more expansive scalability features, and better storage, the server remains stable, fast, and extremely usable.
  •    An affordable and practical choice: Small businesses only have so much money to throw around on servers and CALs. Don’t waste money that could be better spent elsewhere, when all your business needs is more access to a server that still works for all your SQL needs.
