Maintenance tab in the SQL Server Installation Center The Edition Upgrade Wizard allows you to upgrade an installation from a lower edition to a higher one. If you don’t know what is meant by a “lower” edition, just think of how much each edition costs. For example, you can upgrade from Standard to Enterprise, but you cannot upgrade from Enterprise to Standard edition. This feature isn’t here just to up-sell you on the bigger and faster vehicle; it does have some use in the upgrade scenario. Although it is possible to upgrade directly from SQL Server 2000 Standard to SQL Server 2008 Enterprise, the best practice would be to upgrade to SQL Server 2008 Standard first and then perform this edition upgrade once your existing applications are verified.

Are you using deprecated features? As new versions of SQL Server are released, sometimes an existing feature or functionality is no longer needed. Since users and third-party software developers may have extensively used the feature, Microsoft cannot simply remove the feature from the product upon upgrade to the newer version. This action would break the user’s applications and make the incentive of upgrading much less desirable. For this reason, Microsoft has a three-release deprecation policy.

Web (x86 and x64) Web edition is designed for web-hosting companies. In terms of functionality, it is very similar to Workgroup edition.
