Does anyone know where I could find a cost breakdown for an ESRI/Microsoft GIS server and database setup?
I'm trying to figure out all the costs associated with an ArcGIS Server/SDE sitting on top of SQL Server, and compare it to the support cost of a FOSS setup.
From Microsoft we appear to need:
Windows Server - cost per processor and CAL for each user (ArcGIS Server apparently needs IIS which is part of Windows Server)
SQL Server - cost per core and CAL for each user
ArcGIS for Server, Server Image Extension, ArcGIS for Desktop Standard Level (Needed to edit data in SDE)
Any information is greatly appreciated.
