    Unanswered: riddle me this (sql 2008 edition question)

    So we're using Amazon's cloud to host our SQL Servers.

    According to:
    Compare Edition Features

    You need Enterprise Edition in order to run on an 8-way server w/ more than 64GB of memory.

    Yet we have a server at Amazon that is an 8-way w/ 68.4GB of memory that is running standard edition:
    Microsoft SQL Server 2008 (SP1) - 10.0.2531.0 (X64) Mar 29 2009 10:11:52 Copyright (c) 1988-2008 Microsoft Corporation Standard Edition (64-bit) on Windows NT 6.0 <X64> (Build 6002: Service Pack 2)

    How'd they do that?

    The physical order of data in a database has no meaning.

    I know what?

    I can rdp into the box and see it is an Intel Xeon CPU X5550 @2.67 GHz 2.87 GHz (8 processors) w/ 68.4 GB of memory

    I can select @@version and get:
    Microsoft SQL Server 2008 (SP1) - 10.0.2531.0 (X64) Mar 29 2009 10:11:52 Copyright (c) 1988-2008 Microsoft Corporation Standard Edition (64-bit) on Windows NT 6.0 <X64> (Build 6002: Service Pack 2)
