Let's discuss the price for a moment -
60k per CPU?
These prices make sure that small companies that will once grow big (say, Facebook, Twitter few years back) will never consider SQL Server as a solution.
In the long-run, MS loses more popularity to free/open source (or at least cheaper) solutions.

Even for those who can live without the "Enterprise" features, but need a true scale-out solution can't work with these licensing models...

I believe the price of 60k per CPU is more aimed at Financial Companies using StreamInsight for algorithmic trading. It should be compared to other CEP vendors prices. There are actually a few Open Source CEP-platforms, but I don't know about their quality.

About SQL Server pricing in general, I agree it's an issue, but it's a bit outside the topic of this thread.

Agreed.
It somehow caught my eye while reading the article.

BI = Data warehouse

The giveaway is at the end of the article. In the real world data always has conformity issues. If it is not cleaned and matched against reference data, your results will always be problematic.

Sorry to see M$ charge down the same blind alley that Oracle BI, Business objects etc have already foundered in.

I guess if you really need near real time data this could be the bees knees. Otherwise no.

Thanks for the article discussing this product from MS. PriceTag is hefty - and to some would only be pocketchange. Difficult price to manage for some. Then on the flipside - does the product offer some intangible cost savings that would offset the per cpu price tag?

I agree the price tag is hefty. Personally I'd prefer if StreamInsight was available as a separate license. Now it's bundled with SQL Server Datacenter Edition, which has a lot of enterprise features that I doubt StreamInsight users require.

With this pricing, Microsoft has limited StreamInsight to only high-end customers.

Bit of a stale thread but I thought it might be worth updating that StreamInsight is available in all editions other than express.
