Right now we are using SQL SEVER 2005 in PRoduction Servers
as Price concern,to upgrade SQL Server 2005 which one is better 2005 to 2008 or 2005 to 2012 ?
as performance concern, which one is better 2008 or 2012 ?

and How the SQL Server 2012 is running in the market and what review of SQL 2012 on Production Servers ?

Can any one give licensce details with cost for SQL Server 2012 and 2008.

For licensing details, go to Microsoft, always.

As to performance, in my experience, they're really about the same. There aren't any really insanely radical differences within the query engine between the two versions 2008 & 2012. There are a large number of functional differences, especially around high availability. So the main concern for your upgrade should be which of the two is going to serve you better. Another consideration is support. It's 2013. 2008 is 5 years old. It's going to be taken out of support soon. A new version. SQL Server 2014 is likely to be released this year. If anything, I'd suggest exploring upgrading to that rather than even consider 2008. The amount of labor and testing needed is the same for both, but your support life is much longer for a newer software than for an older one.

Please find following link which will give fair idea about SQL Server 2012 licence cost:

However get in touch with Microsoft for latest price; there may be differenct for the different quantity.
