- Windows License Logging Server 2 answers
I have the following servers:
- 2 x web servers (content delivery)
- 1 x cms server
- 2 x database servers (SQL)
- 1 x web server (content delivery + cms)
- 1 x database server (SQL)
I'm a bit confused with the SQL server 2012's User CAL licensing concept. Now that I have CMS and websites that serve contents to public users, does that mean I have to get a User CAL for each of my website / CMS users?? Is this true? I understand that SQL doesn't require User CAL if I get the per-processor/per-core license, but that costs a lot more...In fact I only need 1 sys admin account and 2-3 database users for the websites and CMS.
For win server 2012 I believe we don't need to worry much about User CAL because web edition allows us to use the web server to serve public users. So, basically we just need to purchase Win Server 2012 with 5-User CAL (for management purposes). Please correct me if im wrong..
I need expert's advice on this, tips to save cost, etc.
