Microsoft SQL Server 2005 Workgroup Edition - 32bit + 5 USER CALS

Give your business all the tools it needs to store and analyze data while also avoiding most of the complicated navigation that comes with more SQL Servers. Microsoft SQL Server 2005 Workgroup Edition provides all the major features needed for a small business to get the most from its data, while eliminated the most difficult elements of server management.

What Is Microsoft SQL Server?

The Microsoft SQL Server is a relational database management system that allows you to store, organize, analyze, and report data. These tools make it possible to discover and share new insights into your data through advanced business intelligence. The server provides remote access so that users anywhere can benefit from the tools found on the server.
All the services of the server are easy to access and to use for users and for administrators.
Microsoft SQL Server provides all the tools necessary to increase productivity across the office.

What Is the Workgroup Edition?

Microsoft SQL Server 2005 has several versions, each one designed with certain business in mind. The Workgroup edition is a 32-bit only version that provides all the basic database features and is simpler to operate, making it ideal for small businesses that don’t require some of the more complex analysis and business intelligence features (which are also more complicated to operate) needed for larger businesses.
The Workgroup Server comes with 5 CALs that allow 5 individuals to access all the features of the server.

What Are User CALs?

CALs, or client access licenses, are required for individuals to access the server. CALs come in two forms: device and users. A Device CAL allows one licensed device to access the server. A User CAL, alternatively, allows one licensed user to access the server. This User CAL can be used with any device, providing the optimal ability to use all personal devices anywhere and still maintain access.


Microsoft SQL Server 2005 Workgroup Edition Features

The Microsoft SQL Server 2005 Workgroup Edition makes major improvements across the board, but especially in four key areas: administrator server management, availability, scalability, and security. There are also a number of other major upgrades to use, analysis, and reporting (although some are not available in the Workgroup edition).

Administrator management upgrades—The Microsoft SQL Server 2005 Workgroup Edition makes a number of strides in making server management easier to navigate and carry out.

  • SQL Server Management Studio: Previous editions had many server management tools spread across the server. The SQL Server Management Studio brings together all the tools for the SQL Server relational database. You can cover Integration Services, Analysis Services, Reporting Services, and SQL Mobile.
  • SQL Management Objects: These programming objects gives administrators new levels of automation and increased functionality.
  • Increased visibility for database monitoring: Administrators can now see more of what the server is doing. That includes more than 70 internal database activities. Seeing those activities makes it easier to diagnose the server health.

Availability upgrades—With more high availability functions on the server, the better the server’s overall performance improves. There are a number of major improvements in this area, although, unfortunately, many are not available in the Workgroup edition. Still, the upgrades found in this area still offer a lot of server advancement.

  • Dedicated Administrator Connection: When the server stops responding, troubleshooting previous editions was incredibly difficult. Microsoft SQL Server 2005 Workgroup Edition fixes this by providing a dedicated administrator connection, which allows the administrator to access the server even when it is otherwise non-responsive. This lets you diagnose and troubleshoot.

Scalability upgrades—Microsoft SQL Server 2005 Workgroup Edition provides for more scalable on your server, which in turn makes it more flexible, adaptable, and powerful.
Snapshot Isolation: Data on an analysis-based database has to regularly be rebuilt, which means users are not seeing the most current data. Snapshot Isolation allows users to view the most recent changes, even to the last row.

Security upgrades—One of the most important areas for any server to remain up-to-date, Microsoft SQL Server 2005 Workgroup Edition has a number of improvements that make security easier to run and more thorough.

  • Authorization simplified: Manage permissions more easily while still being able to maintain them at the granular level.
  • Authentication expanded: Authentication now includes Kerberos for more security on the server and client ends. Administrators can also set a consistent login policy across all accounts that is similar to Microsoft Windows.
  • Native Encryption: Encryption goes much farther than in previous editions. Now, all client/server communications are encrypted by default, and the server rejects unencrypted communications. Encrypt also exists across the database and is integrated with key management.

Other upgrades—Upgrades on Microsoft SQL Server 2005 Workgroup Edition provide more use in a number of areas. While the Workgroup edition misses out on major business intelligence enhancements, there are still major upgrades elsewhere to enjoy.

  • Report Builder: Reporting analysis is the main point of doing analysis in the first place, but not everyone is an expert at reporting. Report Builder builds upon Excel and PowerPoint while walking users through the reporting process so that analysis can be reported quickly and easily.
  • SQL Server Mobile 3.0: Improvements in the mobile server include the ability to develop and manipulate databases from a mobile device.
  • XML expanded uses: Databases can flexibly move between XML and relational data. XQuery is included, which allows you to query all XML data.
