Choosing a StreamInsight Edition
This topic provides guidance to help you choose the appropriate edition of StreamInsight to meet your complex event processing application requirements. There are two factors to consider :
Event rate — The number of events that must be processed per second.
Latency tolerance — The amount of time within which the events must be consumed in order to produce the desired output.
StreamInsight is designed to handle a wide variety of event-driven scenarios and is available in two editions: Premium and Standard.
We recommend the Premium edition for applications that require an event rate that exceeds 5000 events per second or has a latency tolerance requirement that is less than five seconds. We recommend the Standard edition for applications that have an event rate requirement less than 5000 events per seconds and/or a latency tolerance requirement in excess of five seconds.
The following table lists the SQL Server 2012 editions in which the Standard and Premium editions of StreamInsight are available.
