In order to use Microsoft SQL Server 2014 in Standard edition, in addition to a SQL Server license - which is also available from Wiresoft - you need client access licenses, e.g. for users without which you cannot access SQL Server: the SQL Server 2014 User CAL. A user registered via this can then use any Windows-enabled computer (e.g. PC, laptop, tablet) to access the server services, because he himself - and not the end device - is provided with the relevant access rights.

In order to use Microsoft SQL Server 2014 in the Standard edition, in addition to a SQL Server license - which is also available from Wiresoft - you also need client access licenses, e.g. for users without which you cannot access SQL Server: the SQL Server 2014 User CAL.

Especially for the Standard edition, Microsoft License Management offers this type of client access licensing for SQL Server 2014 in the form of a User CAL.
Used User CALs for SQL Server 2014 can be found at Wiresoft at particularly low prices. Used access licenses do not differ in terms of access rights and usage options from the User CALs once offered in the official Microsoft volume licensing program - moreover, they are no longer available there for this SQL Server version. At Wiresoft, you can purchase such used User CALs starting from a single client access license, which allows flexible and needs-based licensing of all employees who are to access the SQL Server 2014 services. This User CAL for SQL Server 2014 can also be used to access the features of the previous version, Microsoft SQL Server 2012.
Benefit from all the features with used User CALs for SQL Server 2014
With User CALs for the SQL Server 2014 version, as they are available second-hand in the Wiresoft Software Shop, the data used via a Windows-enabled end device is also available in the cloud, for example - the most important functions are briefly described below.
Overview of the most important functions of SQL Server 2014 Edition Standard
Microsoft SQL Server 2014 is the successor version to SQL Server 2012 and, like its predecessor, is a professional database solution for the use of extensive data for analysis, etc., it was developed to take into account the ever-increasing importance of cloud services and also offers even stronger performance for this purpose. In-memory and cloud business intelligence optimize server operations in mission-critical environments, as does support for hybrid cloud scenarios and even greater scalability.
The Standard edition of SQL Server 2014 is sufficient for SMBs whose need for virtualization is lower or non-existent, here, in addition to business intelligence capabilities, all the key data management tools are available to run business-critical applications securely, with maximum efficiency and with minimal IT resource requirements.
Most importantly, SQL Server 2014 offers new query capabilities to develop and deploy robust applications for a cloud-based information platform, including security features.
Depending on the edition, in-memory OLTP functionality, Column Store Index as well as StreamInsight are also available, as well as SSDT - the SQL Server Data Tools for Business Intelligence. Finally, SQL Server 2014 also offers an even stronger link to the Azure cloud platform with Azure Virtual Machine for backup as well as disaster recovery.
User CALs for SQL Server 2014 also backward compatible
In environments migrating from the older SQL Server version 2012 to SQL Server 2014, the User CAL SQL 2014 also provides access to the previous version (downgrade). However, this does not provide the option of using a newer SQL Server version (upgrade).
Microsoft license management with CALs for SQL Server 2014 Standard
With the release of SQL Server 2014, the Microsoft licensing model for the Standard edition offers a combination of server license plus client access licenses as an alternative to core-based licensing of the server, whereby a variable number of user CALs must be purchased depending on the size of the user group. This variant of access licensing is usually the cheaper alternative, especially for small and medium-sized companies with a smaller server.
Which CAL types are available for SQL Server 2014 Edition Standard?
For client access licensing to SQL Server 2014 (or any other Microsoft Server software), these two CAL types are available respectively:
- User CAL for SQL Server 2014 - for a single user
- Device CAL for SQL Server 2014 - for a specific end device (e.g. PC, laptop, tablet)
As mentioned above, only with one of these two CAL types it is possible to use the features of SQL Server 2014 Standard, because the pure SQL Server license does not include such access rights. The CALs do not include any software other than these access rights for the client/server environment of SQL Server 2014.
What are the differences between User CALs and Device CALs for SQL Server 2014 Standard?
A User CAL for SQL Server 2014 Standard differs from the Device CAL only in who or what the SQL Server access rights are granted to: The User CAL provides a specific individual with access rights for the SQL Server and thus the use of the available data or services. This individual can freely select the end device or alternately use different end devices, which must, however, be Windows-capable. With the User CAL a user is thus locally unbound and can use the server services mobile from end devices located at different places or with a mobile device, e.g. on the way or in the home office.
In contrast, the Device CAL is valid for a specific, single end device, which can then be used alternately by several users.
Used User CALs are also still available for older SQL Server versions such as 2014 Standard Edition at a favorable price
SMEs and smaller organizations often use older SQL Server versions for cost reasons, which are sufficient for their needs; nevertheless, they often require additional client access licenses, which should then correspond to the server version. Used User CALs from Wiresoft are the solution here to provide employees with a suitable access license for SQL Server 2014, as this version is usually no longer offered via the current Microsoft volume licensing program. In addition, used software from Wiresoft is a particularly cost-effective way of supplementing existing requirements for older access licenses for end devices.
The following overview summarizes all advantages and special features of used User CALs from Wiresoft.
When buying User CALs for SQL Server 2014, also consider version compatibility
With the User CAL for SQL Server 2014, an authorized user can not only access SQL Server 2014, but also the SQL Server pre-version 2012 (downgrade). However, it does not include access to the subsequent, more recent SQL Server version 2016.
Therefore, before purchasing User CALs for SQL Server 2014 Standard Edition, you should also consider the possible compatibility between your deployed SQL Server license and the client access licenses you need for it.
What else should be considered when using used User CAL for SQL Server 2014?
Even with used software such as the older User CALs for SQL Server 2014, the usual Microsoft licensing regulations apply: Once an employee has been registered with the User CAL for SQL Server 2014, this client access license cannot be transferred to another user. Likewise, it is in principle impossible to use the User CAL as Device CAL by registering a specific end device with it.
These provisions defined in the Microsoft license management have, among other things, the purpose of preventing unauthorized access to the SQL Server 2014 and the data available there, so that these can be protected as better.
Reasons for choosing used User CALs for Microsoft SQL Server 2014
As used software, both types of client access licenses for SQL Server 2014 offer flexible usage options for SQL Server in an organization. To find out the most suitable CAL type for your company, it is crucial to know not only the employees who regularly access SQL Server, but also the end devices used for this purpose.
User CALs offer more benefits when the majority of users are mobile, for example, and then alternate between using different endpoints - at work, on the road to customers, at other locations and in the home office - to access SQL Server 2014 services. In this situation, licensing with User CALs not only provides more flexibility, but is often more cost-effective because fewer client access licenses need to be purchased. For your advice on purchasing CALs, please contact the Wiresoft team.
What is used software in User CALs for Microsoft SQL Server 2014 from Wiresoft?

This means that not only the trade in used software is permitted by the valid jurisdiction, but also its actual use; several court rulings on this have confirmed this time and again.
