SQL Server 2016 General Availability

Happy SQL Server 2016 General Availability Day!

The June 2016 Product Terms is updated to reflect the 3 main changes in the licensing:

  • Core licences remain but the Core Factor table is no longer used, you just need to assign a minimum of 4 Core licences to each processor
  • BI edition is retired and customers with SA migrate to the special Server/CAL licensed Enterprise edition, and
  • Parallel Data Warehouse deployments are now licensed with Enterprise Core licences

Need to understand the details and consider some real life scenarios?
