Benefits of consolidating servers
For instance, a Pocket PC running SQL CE and accessing SQL Server using remote data access (RDA) or merge replication would need a per-seat license.
Leveragingapplications with automated business processes that enable user centric interconnectedapplications embracing interfaces that are inherently enabled for smart devices withefficient systems represents a proven way to improve the business.
The benefits may include a reduction in licensing and hardware costs as well as eased administrative burdens.

The effect of having a z Enterprise server consolidation of images is to achieve acondensed footprint.

The plummeting cost and increased power of today's server components has moved the real cost of modern computing from hardware to people, processes, power and space.
The arrival of personal computer networks marked a shift away from big iron mainframes and dumb terminals to a decentralized processing model comprised of many (relatively cheap) servers and lots of personal computers.
In many ways, we've come full circle, with the shift back to a centralized model of storage area networks and virtualized servers running on fewer, more powerful servers.
As such, in a never ending quest to minimize operating costs, businesses have embraced consolidation and virtualization techniques, the major goals of which are to avoid server sprawl and minimize costs. Given the ease with which new SQL Server installations can be deployed, and the power of today's commodity PCs, SQL Server sprawl is an all too common problem.
