INFO: The New “Windows SA Per User” licensing

imageWith the release of “Enterprise Cloud Suite” per user licensing, customers can now get Office 365 E3, Enterprise Mobility Suite, and Windows SA Per User licensing for every user in their organization at an attractive price.

Now, this “Windows SA Per User” licensing is a big deal:  Microsoft has never licensed Windows this way before.  It gives the licensed user the right to use Windows on any device, be it desktop, laptop, tablet, or virtual machine.

INCREASED FLEXIBILITY FOR VDI SCENARIOS
Importantly, Windows SA Per User licensing also gives VDI users more flexibility.  Historically, if a corporate device is licensed for Windows on Software Assurance (per device), the primary user may access VDI instances of Windows ONLY from that specific licensed Windows PC/device – not from any other corporate device.

With Windows SA Per User licensing, the licensed user is licensed to access VDI instances of Windows from any corporate device – as well as any home device.
