Can you help me with my software licensing question?
We will be implementing a public-facing website in SharePoint 2010 and I have a few questions regarding licensing:
- Is there any (relatively) reliable pricing information available for SharePoint 2010? What about rumors?
- What edition of SharePoint 2010 would be appropriate for a publicly facing website (in 2007, you needed Enterprise for this, but it seems that WCM functionality is included in Standard in 2010)?
- What would be a reasonable number to budget for SharePoint 2010 licensing for a publicly facing website?
Note: I have tried asking Microsoft directly. Unless you are a volume license customer, they direct you to a reseller (like CDW). Unfortunately, none of the resellers have the pricing for 2010 yet. The sku isn't even in their system.
I was able to get in touch with the Microsoft Pre-Sales team and they confirmed that the price list will for 2010 will be published on May 3rd (or thereabouts), but they weren't able to give me a price.
Thanks in advance for your help!
