Some dislikes, not much

Microsoft SQL Server 2008 Standard seems to be one of the better server platforms that I have had the opportunity to use. I have used it on pre-built machines before this one was my first fresh build. The install and setup were very easy and straight forward. I continue to find new features in 2008 that are going to be very useful. My only dislike for this platform is the tablet styling, I was never a fan of it since it came with windows 8. But all in all a very good product.

The best

Microsoft SQL Server 2008 Standard (2CPU/2VM) is the best you can get currently depending of course on your purpose for the OS. Installation was a breeze and insanely faster than prior MSoft Server OS's. It's lightweight (for Windows) until you load up all the server roles you may need, but the whole point of this license is to allow you to keep the OS's light weigh by Virtualizing other machines and having the jobs spread out! In my case, I have a Server with Server 2012 Datacenter installed and set up as a VM host using Hyper-V. I have 8 VM Servers spun-up within this sever to deal with specific tasks. DNS + File/Print, RDS, SQL, 2 separate IIS, and 3 separate Apps (one archive).

Much to say

There's not much more I can tell you about the Microsoft SQL Server 2008 Standard other than my experience, which has been great thus far, so if you're not sure if this is the right Server to fit your needs, now and future, you should contact an IT Professional and have them assess if it's overkill or if it will be ideal for your situation. Clever google searching and reaching out on various forums online may also provide useful information. This purchase was a little nerve-racking as Ive never bought a Server license from My Choice Software. I felt like anything that could go wrong would, and the first disk Id gotten was that problem I was looking for. I could only get the product key to activate on ONE Virtual Machine (VM). The second VM I was trying to activate was not working. I even had someone else try activating through PowerShell and had no success. I brought this to the attention of the seller who quickly sent me a new disk with a new product key. The new key worked as expected on both VMs and as a bonus, I got to keep the other copy to use on a testing VM Ive been wanting to spin up for a while!
