    The price for Windows licenses

    Good morning,

    OVH can offer licenses for Microsoft products in the form
    SaaS, that is, in location. It is "all leased"
    (i.e. the contract is SPLA) to oposed to standard
    solutions that you would normally buy: buy a server plus
    licenses (OEM or standard). Rental, you can
    take a license per user or unlimited (per processor
    aliases per CPU).

    In bulk. At our level, it is unclear how
    you could offer it and whether you can be really interested. Therefore
    we added a small comparative towards the end of the email. We think that such service may be of the interest to SSII companies that make projects for their customers. I hope you give us feedback on this.

    Sincereally,
    Octave

    Price/month in Sterling
    -----------------------------------------------------------------
    Windows Server 2008
    - Web Edition 15.00/CPU
    - Std Edition 5.50/user
    - Std Edition 220.00/CPU
    - Ent Edition 9.00/user
    - Ent Edition 300.00/CPU
    - Datacenter 80.00/CPU

    SQL Server
    - Web Edition 23.00/CPU
    - Workgroup 6.00/user
    - Workgroup 80.00/CPU
    - Standard 11.00/user
    - Standard 320.00/CPU
    - Entreprise 21.00/user
    - Entreprise 1280.00/CPU

    Terminal Services 5.00/user

    Office
    - Standard 16.00/user
    - Professional Plus 21.00/user

    Hosted Exchange
    - Basic 0.75/user
    - Standard 3.00/user
    - Standard Plus 5.00/user
    - Enterprise 6.50/user
    - Enterprise Plus 8.50/user

    Small comparative (between user license and unlimited):

    The case in which:
    I have 10 terminal server user in a HG dedicated server:

    In version "/user"
    - Windows Ent 9 x 10 (10 user licences)
    - Terminal Services 5 x 10 (10 user licenses)
    -----------------------------------------------------------
    = 140/month (+ the HG server)

    In unlimited version, alias per CPU:
    - Windows Ent 300 x 2 (2 CPUs)
    - Terminal Services 5 x 10 (10 user licences)
    -----------------------------------------------------------
    650/month (+ the HG server)

    therefore, trying to simplify the thought, we would
    must move from the "per user" in the
    "unlimited" when:

    - you have an EG or less and above 40 users (for 40 users,
    at 5.50/user per month, it would be 220/month).
    - you have an MG and more than 80 users (440/month)
    - you have an HG and above 66 users (9/month x 66 users is right below the 600/month that the Windows Ent costs for 2 CPUs)

    For example, if you have 300 users in an HG, the CAL return at 2/month per user(600/month).

    It's also needed to compare everything with the OEM versions:
    -a Windows 2003 Server STD costs ~500
    -a Windows 2003 Server ENT costs ~1950
    -a CAL license costs 20/user

    Therefore, the costs of OEM license with 300 users would be 7,950 to purchase the license (one off, no month per month) [1,950 + 300*20].

    After how many months is this investment interesting?

    7950/600 = 13 month. But if after 13 months
    you want to have a new version of the software, you
    are left in to purchase new licenses. Meanwhile, in
    the SPLA model, you switch on to the new version and
    you continue to pay as usual (and for the server,
    you must often buy a new server, while in
    location, you rent a new and you leave the old one).

    to see and think about it.

    Sincerely,
    Octave

    I hope I got the meaning of this correctly, because if I did, that's some sweet changes OVH made

    So I have have only one user on a server I can give get the Windows 2008 Standard Edition for €5.50 (plus VAT) plus terminal services for €5 (plus VAT) and be up and running?

    Isn't 300 x 2 = 600, and 5 x 10 = 50? Anyway, if you have "unlimited aliases / CPU" -- assuming that means unlimited users per CPU license as it's all Frenglish to me right now -- wouldn't that simply be 300 and not 310? Where does that 10 come in otherwise?

    Something got lost in translation...

    Re: Le prix des licences Microsoft

    It should also compare this with the OEM versions:
    - A Windows 2003 Server Std costs ~ 500 Euros
    - A Windows 2003 Server Ent costs ~ 1950 Euros
    - CAL costs 20 Euros / user
    Okay, to further that using some more accurate numbers on this last bit

    Non-OEM Windows 2003 Server Enterprise Edition R2 x64 2 CPU (Reseller Option Kit) + 25 CAL = 1792 = €2067.

    5 User CALs = 112 = €129.

    So the cost of OEM licenses with 300 users would
    7950 Euros to purchase license (1 time, no, months):
    (1950Euro + 300 * 20euro).
    300 users - 25 included CAL = 275 users.
    275 / 5 CAL (license pack) = 55 * €129 = €7095 + W 2K3 (€2067) = €9162.

    €9162 / €600 = 15 1/4 months.

    - or -

    €9162 / 12 = €763.50 = €163.50 per month in savings. Plus you get 2008, not 2003.

    if you have 300 users in an HG, the CAL return at 2/month per user(600/month).
