Microsoft's Core CAL is a new way for customers to conveniently manage Microsoft CALs (Client Access Licenses) for the basic server components across the enterprise. It replaces the BackOffice CAL in all Volume Licensing offerings, and serves to qualify Enterprise Agreement (EA) customers for the Platform discount just like the BackOffice CAL. The Core CAL offers a convenient way to license basic server components across all desktops within the firewall. In addition, it reduces the overall complexity in managing CALs for server software for IT professionals. The Core CAL includes CALs (Client Access Licenses) for Windows Server, Exchange Server, System Management Server, and SharePoint Portal Server. Whether through an EA or any other volume licensing agreement, customers buying the Core CAL will always buy Software Assurance attached. This way, clients will be appropriately licensed regardless of the software version deployed.

MICROSOFT OPEN LICENSE BUSINESS

Microsoft Open License is a software volume licensing program designed for corporate, government, charity, and academic customers who order as few as five licenses. After the initial order, customers can benefit from volume pricing for all licenses for the remainder of the term of their Open License authorization number.

Open License Business offers savings on estimated retail prices by placing an initial order for five or more licenses or one server processor license. With Open License Business, customers can combine any set of Microsoft products to qualify for the five-license minimum.

SOFTWARE ASSURANCE

Microsoft's Software Assurance gives you automatic access to new technology and provides productivity benefits, support, tools, and training to help deploy and use software efficiently.

With Software Assurance, you receive access to new versions of licensed software released during the term of your agreement to deploy at your own pace. New Version Rights simplifies the procurement process and shortens the business process cycle, allowing you to reduce the costs associated with acquiring new version releases and immediately take advantage of the latest technology.
