The Server+CAL (Client Access License) licensing model for SQL Server is a licensing option that allows organizations to license the server software separately from the number of client devices or users accessing the server. With this model, a server license is required for each server running SQL Server, while CALs are needed for each client device or user accessing the server. This licensing model is suitable for scenarios where the number of clients accessing the server varies, as it provides flexibility and cost-effectiveness. By selecting the Server+CAL model, organizations can ensure compliance with licensing requirements while accommodating the dynamic needs of their user base.
What are SQL Server CALs?
SQL Server CALs (Client Access Licenses) are licenses that grant the right for a client device or user to access and use SQL Server. CALs are required in addition to the server license for each client device or user that directly or indirectly accesses the SQL Server software. They provide businesses with the flexibility to scale their client access as needed, accommodating a varying number of users or devices accessing SQL Server. By obtaining the appropriate number of CALs, organizations ensure compliance with licensing requirements while enabling authorized users to connect to and utilize SQL Server's powerful database management capabilities. CALs play a vital role in regulating and managing client access to SQL Server's services and functionalities.
