Hi Guys

We currently run 2008 R2 and SSRS (not sharepoint) on a 4 core VM, so license is around $8K. We have more and more needs for data driven subscriptions, but can't justify upgrading to enterprise version on 4 core machine ($28k). I was thinking that spinning up a dedicated VM for SSRS with a single core and running enterprise version of SQL Server would get us what we need fro about $8K (SQL and WIn licenses) -- we have enough RAM

I've read that having SSRS on a dedicated box improves performance too.

So would this work if we offloaded all of our SSRS to a new single core VM? Can you buy just an Enterprise SSRS licenses or must you always buy it with SQL server?

I've scoured the web, but couldn't find an answer

BTW, we own SQL2012 licenses, can't use it yet because of 3rd part app compatibility, but I figured if we went this route we could use some of the new features of SSRS 2012 with 2008 R2 data sources

Thanks

Mark

You have to buy SQL Server. SSRS is not sold as a separate product.

Cool

If your licences are under Software Assurance then you are bound by the SQL 2012 licensing rules even if you are running an older version of SQL Server.

You have to license at least 4 cores, even on a server that only has 1 core, so there are NO license cost savings from reducing the core count below 4.
