Brief overview of SQL Server 2014 functionalities available with a Device CAL in Standard edition
Microsoft SQL Server 2014 is a comprehensive database solution and the successor version of SQL Server 2012, it responds to the increasingly important trend towards Cloud-Services with even stronger performance. To this end, operation in mission-critical environments has been optimized with new as well as enhanced functions for in-memory and Cloud Business intelligence, and even greater scalability including support for various hybrid Cloud scenarios is provided. SQL Server 2014 offers an even stronger link to the Azure Cloud platform with Azure Virtual Machine for backup and disaster recovery.
The Standard edition of SQL Server 2014 for smaller and mid-sized companies with lower virtualization requirements provides all important data management tools and Business intelligence functions for running business-critical applications while minimizing IT resource requirements and maximizing efficiency.
In addition, users benefit from new security features and query capabilities to develop and deploy robust applications for a Cloud-based information platform. Depending on the edition, the in-memory OLTP functionality as well as Column Store Index and StreamInsight are available, as well as the new SQL Server Data Tools for Business Intelligence (SSDT).
Device CALs for SQL Server 2014 also applicable for SQL Server version 2012
For users who want to upgrade from the older SQL Server version 2012 to SQL Server 2014, the Device CAL SQL 2014 also offers the possibility to access this previous version.
The Microsoft license management with client access licenses for SQL Server 2014
With the release of SQL Server 2014, in the Microsoft licensing model for the Standard-edition, in addition to Core-based licensing of the server, the alternative licensing option from Server-license Plus supplementing Device CALs is offered, whereby a variable number of client access licenses must be purchased here depending on the size of the company. This variant of access licensing with supplementary Device CALs often represents the more favorable alternative for smaller and medium-sized companies with a smaller Server.
Which CAL-types are available for SQL Server 2014 Edition Standard?
There are two CAL-types available for client access licensing for SQL Server 2014:
- Device CAL for SQL Server 2014 - for a single endpoint device (e.g. PC, laptop, tablet)
- User CAL for SQL Server 2014 - for a single user
Only with one of the two CAL types it is possible to use the features of SQL Server 2014, the pure SQL Server license is not sufficient. These CALs do not include any software other than access rights to the client/server environment of SQL Server 2014.
What are the differences between Device CALs and User CALs for SQL Server 2014?
Device CALs for SQL Server 2014 differ from the corresponding User CALs only in the form in which the access authorization for the SQL Server is granted: A Device CAL equips a specific Windows-enabled end device with access rights for the SQL Server and the services and data available via it, whereas with the User CAL a single user is granted these rights; the end device can then be used by any authorized User and, for example, used alternately in shift operations.
If the licensed end device is not a stationary PC in a company, but a mobile laptop or tablet, then the SQL Server services can also be used locally independently, e.g. on the road or in the home office. In contrast to Device CAL , User CAL offers other possibilities in a work situation where the majority of users alternately and regularly use different end devices for this purpose.
Used Device CALs for SQL Server 2014 Edition Standard with the advantage of availability - at a reasonable price
Especially smaller companies and organizations do not use the latest SQL Server version, e.g. due to cost reasons, but may need additional client access licenses - here used Device CALs not only have an economic advantage, but are often the only solution to equip end devices with a suitable access license for the SQL Server 2014, because this version is usually no longer offered by Microsoft and resellers. Then here used software from Wiresoft is the solution to supplement the existing need for older access licenses for end devices.
The following overview summarizes once again all the advantages and special features of used Device CALs .
When buying Device CALs for SQL Server 2014 also consider the version compatibility
The Device CAL for SQL Server 2014 entitles not only to access SQL Server 2014, but also to the older SQL Server version 2012 (downgrade). However, these do not include access to the subsequent higher SQL Server version 2016.
Therefore, when buying Device CALs for SQL Server 2014 Standard edition, you should also pay attention to the compatibility between the on-site SQL Server license and the client access licenses required for it.
What else needs to be considered when using used Device CAL to SQL Server 2014?
Even with used older Device CALs like the access license for SQL Server 2014 the following Microsoft license terms apply: After using a Device CAL for SQL Server 2014 a certain end device has been registered, the client access license cannot be transferred to another computer. Also it is principally excluded to change the CAL-type and to use the Device CAL as User CAL to register a specific User with it.
These provisions in the Microsoft license management also serve, among other things, to prevent third-party, unauthorized access to the SQL Server 2014, so that a company's data and its communications can be better protected.
The decision for used Device CALs for Microsoft SQL Server 2014
Both types of used client access licenses for SQL Server 2014 offer flexible usage options of the respective SQL Server in an organization. To find out the most suitable CAL-type for your company, it is important to know not only the number of end devices licensed over it, but also the number of employees who will access the SQL Server.
Device CALs offer the greater advantage if different users regularly and alternately use the licensed end device - even locally independently - to access the SQL Server 2014 services, because they have no need for a single computer that they use exclusively on their own. In the situation described as an example, licensing with used Device CALs not only has more advantages in terms of usage, but is also more cost-effective because fewer client access licenses need to be purchased here.
