FORT COLLINS, Colo., March 13, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- DH2iTM Company, the world's leading provider of server application virtualization solutions, today announced a brand new promotion aimed at Microsoft SQL Server 2012 customers. For a limited time, DH2i's DxConsole software will be offered at a 20% discount to new customers that wish to upgrade their environment to Microsoft SQL Server 2012. The promotion is intended to enable customers that wish to take advantage of SQL Server 2012's major feature enhancements – including business intelligence, auditing and disaster recovery (DR) functionality, among other upgrades, but have been wary of licensing changes and the substantial increase in pricing.
Why is upgrading to SQL 2012 so expensive? Microsoft has changed to a per-core licensing system with the release of SQL Server 2012. Licensing has become especially expensive when running as a virtualized instance. Enterprise edition must be licensed per virtual machine (VM) and per hardware core, with a minimum of four cores per VM. However, Microsoft licensing allows unlimited instances of SQL Server 2012 to run on the same physical or virtual machine without any additional licensing.
Why isn't everyone already taking advantage of this new pricing model? Until now, creating new instances on a given machine has been a major headache - labor intensive, time-consuming, and prone to error.
Not any more! With DxConsole, users can add and move instances in less than 30 seconds. The ability to quickly and accurately stack instances enables customers to take advantage of Microsoft's new per core model and consequently save over 75% in licensing costs.
