People may have missed this great offering by Microsoft. If one closely checks out the feature set that comes with this edition, one can say that this edition is even more powerful than SQL Server 2000 Standard Edition and way much cheaper. Here is some quick info:
- 2 CPU Max Supported
- 3GB RAM
- 64bit Support based on WOW
- No Database Size Limit
To my opinion, this is a lot!!! This used to be the numbers for SQL Server 2000 Standard Edition.
Microsoft made the right move in coming up with an edition targeting the small business sector.
