SQL Server 2014 Standard



SQL Server 2014 has three main editions that are closely aligned with how customers use SQL Server across workloads. SQL Server 2014 delivers licensing that enables you to more easily take advantage of the benefits of public and private cloud through virtualization and license mobility. Our new model provides simplified licensing, flexibility and innovation, and industry-leading total cost of ownership (TCO).
Simplified licensing

SQL Server 2014 offers two licensing models: one that is based on computing power, and one that is based on users or devices.

Flexibility and innovation

Cloud-optimized licensing gives you the ability to license a single virtual machine (VM) or to license a server for maximum virtualization, as well as the flexibility to move your VMs from server to server, to hosters or the cloud.
Industry-leading TCO

SQL 2014 continues to provide outstanding value at any scale among all major vendors. SQL Server 2014 offers compelling product features and capabilities within three main editions, with no costly add-ons required to run your mission critical and business intelligence applications.
