|Windows Server Customers Face Licensing Decisions|
|Thursday, 26 July 2012|
Customers may be able to leverage Windows Server 2012 packaging, pricing, and licensing changes to more effectively manage their Windows Server license portfolio for their future server needs and reduce license costs. Depending upon the circumstances, it may be advantageous to accelerate or delay some license purchases, take advantage of Step-up Licenses before they disappear, and carefully manage the number of licenses covered by Software Assurance (SA) subscriptions when renewing. While Select and Open customers must act prior to the general availability (GA) of Windows Server 2012 in Sept. 2012, customers with Enterprise Agreements (EAs) generally have more time.
