We offer three different editions of Microsoft SQL Server for installation on your Windows 2003 Standard Edition Dedicated Server. The right choice for your business depends on the size of your organization and complexity of your website or Web application.

Microsoft SQL Server Editions

Workgroup Edition
Workgroup Edition is the data management solution for small organizations that need a database with no limits on size or number of users. Workgroup Edition can serve as a front-end Web server or for departmental or branch office operations. It includes the core database features of the SQL Server product line.
Standard Edition
Standard Edition is the data management and analysis platform for small and medium-sized organizations. It includes the essential functionality needed for non-critical e-commerce, data warehousing, and line-of-business solutions. Standard Edition's integrated business intelligence and high-availability features provide organizations with the essential capabilities needed to support their operations.
Enterprise Edition
Enterprise Edition scales to the performance levels required to support enterprise online transaction processing (OLTP), highly complex data analysis, data warehousing systems, and websites. With comprehensive business intelligence, robust analytics capabilities and high-availability features such as failover clustering and database mirroring, SQL Server Enterprise can handle the most critical enterprise workloads.

For additional help choosing the optimal edition for your particular business situation, please contact Customer Support.

MS SQL will be installed via 'Add/Remove Programs' on Remote Desktop. MS SQL can take up to 30 minutes to install (New versions can take 5-24 hours for installation)

Data Transfer (Throughput)

By default dedicated servers are limited to 10mbit speed. If you would like to increase this to 100mbit (at no cost) you will need to contact support via chat. This will also let you exceed your bandwidth limit instead of throttling your account. If you do use more than the allotted bandwidth for the server then you would be charged for the excess bandwidth.

I386 Folder (Windows Only)

I386 folder: Windows only: Our Professional Hosting Services will manually install the file and it will be effective immediately. There is no downtime.
