I am still on SQL Server 2005 and have no plans to upgrade to 2008/10. I want to run a website that has 1 sql server and up to 5 webservers accessing the sql server. No other devices/machines will be accessing the sql server. I want to buy a SQL Sever 2005 Standard with 5 CALs. I have searched and find that most of the official Microsoft 2005 license information is redirecting to 2008 information. So, I was hoping someone could tell me straight up.
- Does a Web server = CAL?
- Does the CAL version still allow 4 CPUs (standard)?
Please let me know.
