    Great book to have. Easy to understand even though the licensing rules are complicated.

    Easy to read and to understand, perfect study material for everyone who wants to know more about SQL Server licensing.

    Very well written and relevant, and covers most SQL licensing scenarios you could come up against. It is written in a way that makes a specialist subject understandable by a non licensing geek!

    “The book was very well laid out, 1st parts were great for refreshing my knowledge, second section was very useful, some parts such as the Hyperthreading used terminology that wasn’t the easiest to understand, as a complex area it maybe should have more on it. Thought the cloud section was very good, and very useful, as not so familiar with, but feel confident that I now understand it well enough to consider the cloud options available. Also thought the software dependency list and technology list was brill, really useful to have available.”
