Okay, I'm just looking for a high level explanation of what it would take to set up a SQL Server in a business that will not have the support of the corporate IT.
I've worked with SQL server from a build queries/packets and use on website perspective, as well as data collection, but haven't had any involvment with server and SQL setup. I may have to take some classes in helping to setup and maintain, I just need to know what type of issues I may run into when setting this up.
Will I need dedicated T-1 lines, networking, etc.? If I get the server and the SQL licenses, what steps will need to be taken next in order to use this as a data collection/reporting server?
Thanks in advance, just looking for high level answers in order to move on to next steps...
