Information On Windows Server 2008 Licensing


Windows server is primarily licensed using server plus Client Access Licence (CAL) model or a processor plus CAL mode

  • A Device CAL is an access license for every device (used by a user). Device CALs make the most economical and administrative sense for a customer with multiple users (such as shift workers) for one device.
  • The per-user or per device model is determined by the maximum number of users or devices accessing the server software.

The windows server CAL must be purchased for every user or device accessing a server either directly or indirectly.
