We are trying to upgrade our sql server from 2005 to 2012. we got some offers for different type of license from some resellers. the only thing I'm not sure now is, there's one type core license with software assurance (more expensive), and another type core license without software assurance (cheaper). I wonder if this software assurance means the access of SA account?
we would of course like to have the SA access, as we have now in sql 2005.
I guess i'm probably confused with the meaning of software assurance and SA account.
This question is not a double to the suggested question, I was confused with the SA account, and the Software assurance in SQL server license. It's completely two different questions, and the answer from the other post, doesn't answer my question.
