|Office Professional Plus License Offered with Office 365|
|Monday, 25 July 2011|
Customers can now buy a subscription license to Office Professional Plus as part of Microsoft's recently released Office 365 offerings. Unlike existing options for volume licensing customers, the new Office Professional Plus for Office 365 subscription is licensed per user (rather than per device) and allows installation on up to five devices per license. This option, combined with advantageous pricing, could make it an attractive licensing alternative for some customers. However, the fact that this new licensing option doesn't support Remote Desktop Services or Virtual Desktop Infrastructure deployments, as well as other forms of remote access, may lessen its appeal.
