Microsoft Enterprise Agreement (EA) vs. Cloud Solution Provider (CSP) Licensing Agreement: What's Best for You?

EA VS. CSP

Choice is critical in business, but sometimes it’s difficult to determine the best decision for your specific organization. Such is the case when it comes to contracting services for Azure and your other Microsoft cloud applications. For many years, the best choice for larger organizations was signing up for an Enterprise Agreement (EA) directly with Microsoft. However, now there is a new option called Cloud Service Provider (CSP), a contract you can purchase from a certified Microsoft partner.

Both offer similar services and similar pricing. There are advantages and disadvantages to both depending on your size and type of business. So, how do you decide what’s the right choice for your organization? Below is a look at the two options in several key areas.

Making SQL Server Highly Available

Making SQL Server Highly Available

Customers today need their SQL data to be highly available. With technologies built into the current versions of SQL Server, highly available databases are easier than ever to achieve.

Making data highly available has progressed through a series of technologies in SQL Server. So, let’s rewind for a minute while I explain how. Prior to SQL 7.0, Microsoft and Sybase worked together in a joint effort to produce a relational database which allowed database mirroring.
