Pricing of a SQL Server clustering solution

I understand that to implement SQL Server clustering solution, it is
necessary to have Win 2K Advanced server. We are looking at 2Node
failover solution on a 2CPU Pentium box. Is there a site where we
can find out the cost of Win2K and SQL server for this configuration.

Thanks.

If you have to buy it on the per-processor license (which is how I always
buy it) it is about $20K per processor just for the SQL Enterprise
licenses. Windows 2003 Enterprise or 2k Advanced is about $3000 per
machine. The cost for the machines will totally vary based on what you
need, but I would put a base of about $15K for a single machine with dual
2GHz Xeons, 4GB RAM and 5 72GB 15k RPM drives. So that's a total of about
$116,000 for both boxes with software.
