Installing BODS on MSSQL developer edition

Hi Experts,

I have a small question to ask if anyone has done this in their BODS landscape. We are planning to stand up a 3 tier landscape for SAP BODS and as part of that we would like to use MsSQL DB developer edition for our Development and Quality instance.

Wanted to know if others have done the same. Are there any limitations?

All responses welcome.

From the Licensing Quick Reference Guide:

The SQL Server 2012 Developer Edition is a full-function version of the SQL Server software—with all the features and capabilities of the Enterprise edition—licensed under the Developer Tools model, which is a “per user” model. One license is required for each person that accesses or uses the software.

When using SQL Server software for development, test or demonstration purposes, only the users are licensed and there is no need for a corresponding license for the actual server systems running SQL Server software in this case.

As long as only licensed users have access to the software, customers can install as many copies of the software on any number of servers that are used exclusively for development, test or demonstration purposes. This is significant, because it allows customers to run the software on multiple devices (for testing purposes, for example) without having to license each non-production server systems

I don't see any limitations of using Dev. edition.What version you plan to use on the Prod?
