Hosting providers who want to offer software services to their customers and who will include software licenses as part of their service offering should use SPLA. Microsoft SPLA is the only Microsoft Volume Licensing program that allows Microsoft products to be used for commercial hosting.
Under SPLA, Microsoft products are licensed per month, either per user or per server depending on the product. Nearly the full catalog of Microsoft products are available under SPLA.
If you already own perpetual licenses for Microsoft products, you can also use them in conjunction with a hosting partner, in essence extending your on premise deployment to a dedicated hosting facility.
InfoStrat has been a Microsoft SPLA partner for over five years, allowing us to offer our clients greater flexibility than perpetual licenses as well as greater customization than Microsoft cloud hosting.
