Windows 2003 Server - Web edition
Windows 2003 Server Web edition is a special version of Windows 2003 Server
with a licencing scheme suited to hosting environments.
Traditionally Windows server has required CALs (client access licences) for each
authenticated connection to the server.
Web edition removes the requirement for CALs, this is achieved by placing
some restrictions on usage and functionality that may require the
use of Standard edition for some applications:
Web edition does not support Windows Media Services (streaming).
Web edition does not support MS SQL database server except Express.
Installations of non-Web serving applications are prohibited.
Please see the offical Microsoft Web edition overview link below for full details.
Windows 2003 Server - Web, Standard and Enterprise editions
|Limitations:||RAM||CPUs||Firewall||MS SQL||Media Services|
|Web edition SP1||2GB||2||Yes||N||N|
For licencing Microsoft define a CPU as a physical CPU, so a single dual core processor
would be classed as one CPU for licencing purposes.
