Im trying to cost up us buying our new licenses next year . I dont want to ring up any agents for quotes as we dont want to buy till late next year so will just be a waste of there time .
has any one this year already had quotes for buying licenses this year ?
If so could you give me a general cost for buying these
4x 2008 Server Standard 64bit OS
250x - device cals
1x Exchange ( latest ) 64bit
250x Device cals .
250x Office 2010
If any one could give me the price they maybe paid this year or last to actually BUY the licences , would be great . I am trying to do a 5 year budget plan so its all guess work really.
Just to be clear we want to BUY . No annual renewal .

So hopefully no OS licenses required

Sounds like you have your answers but i just wanted to mention something to you. I know you said no annual renewal but have you had a look at the new EES agreements?
A lot of my clients have signed up to these as they are really cost effective as you only license per member of full time staff.
Let me know if you need anymore info or pricing.

If you are virtualizing the 4x 2008 Server Standard 64bit OS licenses on one host you could buy 1 copy of enterprise instead as it allows 1 host + 4 virtual

As was mentioned, EES might be something that is worth a look at for you? If your buying that number of cals / licenses then EES might prove more cost effective?
Certainly another option to look at for you

Agree with RTFM ESS has really altered the pricing structure.
