SQL Advanced Server


Hello ist,

I need a few answers please....

Does "SQL2000 Advanced" need "Windows 2000 Advanced Server"?
Anybody Running Webshere Standard 3.5 with more than
100 Users connecting to a Dual Box?
Or should we put Websphere 3.5
Advanced Server on JAS to run 200 users?

I've heard that Websphere Standard does not
cope with roughly 100 users on a Dual Box.
BUT the same Box with Webshere Advanced
Flies with up to 300 Users?

Many Thanks

Allen Hobson

Yes, SQL200 Advanced needs Win2000 advanced server so it can take advantege
of the "advanced" features like clustering

Re: RE: SQL Advanced Server

First, there's no such thing as SQL "Advanced"... I assume you meant "Enterprise".

Check out this link:

Win2k Advanced is NOT a requirement for SQL 2000. It's really a question of: What features of SQL require you to buy Enterprise edition? Do THOSE features also require Win2k Advanced edition?

As mentioned, Microsoft clustering is one example that would require both.
