Microsoft SQL Server 2008 R2 Workgroup Edition is a data storage, management, and reporting platform for remote offices or branch locations. It includes the core database functionality of Microsoft SQL Server 2008 R2 Standard but lacks support for data warehousing, data mining, analysis services, and other advanced functionality, such as failover clustering and certain security, integration, and reporting services.

The management interface is Microsoft SQL Server Management Studio, a graphical management tool for all Microsoft SQL Server 2008 R2 Workgroup Edition components with rich scripting capabilities. Microsoft SQL Server Management Studio includes Policy-Based Management, which can create policies that manage entities on the server, such as the instance of Microsoft SQL Server 2008 R2 Workgroup Edition, databases, and other Microsoft SQL Server objects.

Microsoft SQL Server 2008 R2 Workgroup Edition offers development tools that are tightly integrated with the Microsoft .NET framework and Visual Studio to provide end-to-end application development capabilities.

Here are some notable features of this product:

  • Remote synchronisation and management capabilities allow organisations to run branch database applications securely.
  • The server replication features support an unlimited number of subscribers for snapshot replication, up to 25 subscribers for merge replication, and up to 5 subscribers for transactional replication.
  • Developers can access encrypted data and audit database activity without changing existing applications.


This product includes one processor license.

No client access licenses are required for Microsoft SQL Server 2008 R2 Workgroup Edition.
