  • I can't provide you with dollar amounts, you'll need to get quotes from your vendors, especially for the services (numbers 2-4).

    From your description, you will need the following licenses (see the Licensing Q&A for more info):

    For each server:

    • Windows Server license (Standard or Enterprise, depending on the Windows functionality you require)
    • Windows Server CALs for the 1,000 users or each device if they share devices

    On the SQL Servers:

    • SQL Server license (edition dependant on SQL features needed). User CALs or Per-processor. Given 1,000 users a per-processor license is likely a better deal

    On the SharePoint Servers (that is all servers that have SharePoint installed):

    • SharePoint Server license (Standard or Enterprise, depending on the SharePoint functionality you require)
    • SharePoint CALs for each user or device

    All of the other costs are completely dependant on what you are trying to do and what you need your vendor to provide. For development, the licensing costs are typically covered by an MSDN or VL license agreement with Microsoft.

  • Well, SharePoint Foundation 2010's licensing is covered by your Windows Server licensing. Provided you have an activated copy of windows and enough CALs, the cost of Foundation is otherwise $0.00.

    The actual cost of the licensing depends on the type of licensing agreement you have with Microsoft, the number of servers in the farm, the SharePoint edition, the number of users or devices that access resources in the farm, plus any third party applications you deploy into SharePoint. I've seen the entire spectrum of costs from a few thousand to hundreds of thousands of dollars for large farms (I'm talking about licensing; hardware is another huge line item).

    I don't know enough about your organization or your plans for SharePoint to provide you with an amount the licensing will cost you, nor do I sell licenses so any number I provide is just a number that is probably not correct for you. I recommend talking to your licensing vendor or contacting Microsoft Volume Licensing in your region for more accurate numbers.

  • Add to Jason's response, for SharePoint license, there has another chooice.

    For external purpose, you can use the "SharePoint Server 2010 for Internet Sites" license also. This license requires Server license only, no CALs are required.

    • SharePoint Server 2010 for Internet Sites, Standard

    • SharePoint Server 2010 for Internet Sites, Enterprise

    For more detailed, please see:

    Jinchun is right, there is also the Internet Sites license as well.

    You could use this for scenarios where you have a large number of external users that you cannot count or purchasing CALs would be cost prohibitive. This is most commonly used in farms that are used for public websites that provide anonymous access. In addition to the SharePoint licensing you will require SQL Server per-processor licensing and the Windows Server External Connector.
