Office Web Apps Server

Office Web Apps Server is software for on-premises servers that provides browser-based viewing and limited editing of Excel, OneNote, PowerPoint, and Word documents stored in SharePoint Server. In some scenarios, use of Office Web Apps Server is free, in others, Office suite (Per-Device) licenses or User SLs are required. The last (2013) version of the Office Web Apps Server is still available, but in May 2016 a new and renamed version called Office Online Server became generally available (with somewhat different licensing requirements).
