Server Applications

Server applications. This section we will examine in more detail, since the bulk of the issues related to the problem of understanding Principles for licensing arises precisely when implementing server applications. As it may seem at first glance, the scheme of licensing server applications is simple enough, but for each product, there are many nuances that the first time do not fit in my head, even in people with sufficient technical background and expertise in software licensing. We will try to describe everything as accessible as it is possible. Server operating systems. The licensing model of server applications is as follows: All products are licensed by the scheme – the license to the server and client connection (CAL) or, if necessary, External Connector, more about cal and External Connector discussed later, yet understand with basic models for licensing servers.

Servers services. The most common server service is Exchange, the licensing model is similar to the model server os license for the server and client connections and if necessary, External Connector. Servers per processor. In the model of the processor, too, it would seem, everything is simple, until the notion of virtual processor. Previously licensed physical processor itself, and no questions arise, but when the concept of "virtual environment" appeared a lot of nuances, which should also be dismantled. In principle, licensing per processor "licenses for additional client connections are not needed for except Data Center Edition, but this too a little later. Management servers. Management servers are licensed as follows: a license for the server control and license the device, which will manage the server.
