Although it is unlikely to ever appear on any bestsellers’ list, I thought you may be interested in downloading a copy of a free guide to Microsoft SQL Server 2008 R2 Licensing prepared by the independent analyst Directions on Microsoft.

Directions on Microsoft reports are normally only available to fee-paying subscribers so this is definitely the opportunity to get something of value at no cost. The SQL Server Licensing Guide provides excellent information on all versions of SQL Server 2008 that are currently available and the most appropriate and cost-effective licensing options for different types of organisation.

You can download your free copy of the report here

If, after reading the guide, you have questions or need clarification with regard to your specific SQL Server Licensing requirements please email sqluk@microsoft.com and we’ll identify the right specialist to answer your query.
