I am a totally rookie in this area.
I am about to rent a Dedicated Server, that has Microsoft Windows Web Server 2008 installed in it.
The plan is to put a web application that we have developed in it. But for this web application, we need Microsoft SQL Server 2008 Web Edition. I have read somewhere that both are compatible… but I am not sure. So I would like to have some confirmation on this subject if possible.
Also, in the description of this server, it says: “Windows Server 2008 Web Edition (1 processor)”. This obviously means that it only uses 1 processor… I didn’t know that could be applied to Windows itself… I thought it was just the SQL Server (since the license is Per Processor). Is this some typo? Or the Windows Web Server is Per Processor too? Also, performance wise, am I choosing the right Windows Server and SQL Server versions? (I remember you, that this is a Web Application developed by us). I think that other distributions of Windows Server and SQL Server are only a matter of features, and not performance… right?
PS: I know, I know… too many questions on a single post. But if you think that is more correct to create multiple questions…. I can do that.
