The pricelist is only for the latest editions of products, updated at the beginning of the month - although it will not be updated if there are no price changes. If you want an older version of the software you have to buy the latest version and downgrade. N.B. Microsoft only provide a single worksheet pricelist now. In the product types,  Software assurance and SA Step-up items have been filtered out in the spreadsheet as we cannot purchase them without an accompanying license. If they may appear in the price tables please ignore them.

Server Licences

The licensing model for SQL server software is quite complicated - please check your requirement with Software Services Team before placing the order. The correct licensing can depend on the spec of the server it's going onto, the number of virtual servers and the type of client access.

There is guidance on How to run and license an SQL server at Microsoft which might be helpful to look at before you order. But if you are at all unsure please contact us with your server details and what you want to do so we can check.
