    Best place to purchase MS SQL Standard

    I've unfortunately come across the need to use TDE encryption on three databases, and that requires me to purchase MS SQL Standard edition.

    Anyone with experience on a good place to make a purchase such as this?

    I assume that you aren't part of an organization that has a contractual relationship with Microsoft, right? I seem to remember that you work for yourself, but with some larger scholastic institutions. Microsoft has some interesting licensing variations, though I'm not sure what they're at right now. They seem to change them around periodically. You might get some deal via one of those institutions that is also legal. If not, I'd be inclined to go directly to Microsoft for that.

    @Shaggy - thanks for this info - I'll see if I can make some kind of connection to a license program like that. I am doing this for a project I'm working on myself.
