Licensing model

Licenses under the SPLA are non-perpetual (or subscription) licenses that can be used during the term of the agreement. There are two licensing models available for offering Microsoft licensed products to customers: "per subscriber" and "per processor".

Per Subscriber: A Subscriber Access License (SAL) is required for each unique individual user or device that is authorized to access or otherwise use the licensed products. With the SAL option, a separate Server License is not needed.

Per Processor: Each Processor License allows an unlimited number of users to access the software that is installed on that processor for products licensed through a per processor model.

If the application may be licensed by both models the service provider may pass to the other scheme anytime (not frequently than once a month).

"Per Subscriber" Licensing peculiarities

  • The subscriber gets access to any quantity of servers from any quantity of devices. Подписчик получает доступ к любому количеству серверов с любого количества устройств.

  • Horizontal scalability: service provider can install any quantity of servers for the customer.

  • Service provider doesn’t pay up-front costs for the OS, as the license fees are directly proportional to the number of subscribers.

"Per License" Licensing Peculiarities

  • The record keeping of “per processor” licensing is easy, which in its turn causes the reduction of administrative costs. Usually it is used after reaching a definite number of subscribers.

  • Vertical scalability: service provider may serve any number of customers on his server.
