Thread: Upgrading from SQL Server 2008RN to SQL 2016?

    Upgrading from SQL Server 2008RN to SQL 2016?

    Hi there,

    We are planning our JDE upgrade from 9.0 to 9.2, and we need to upgrade SQL Server.

    I was looking into SQL Server 2016, but the pricing is quite extreme because we are charged per core, and are using VMWare.

    Does anyone have any recommendations on a different database system instead of sql 2016?

    Have you confirmed the licensing requirements around SQL Server and virtual machines? VMWare have reasonable article that goes into it at

    If you have the required tech foundation licenses for Oracle then you can migrate to Oracle (would recommend also moving to Linux at the same time) but I'm guessing if your requirements mean your SQL Server license costs are excessive then you'd probably need a licensed version of the Oracle database and Oracle licenses are generally about 3 to 1 in terms of cost when compared to SQL Server.

    So, if you can use the red stack license then Oracle, otherwise SQL Server is probably your best bet but check you've explored the licensing properly.
