    CALS for Server 2008 R2

    What's the cheapest place to buy "Select" style Server 2008 R2 CALS?

    Sorry, I imagine this is a duplicate thread, but I've searched on here as well as in the big bad web and I can't find any obviously good deals.

    (Straightforward device CALs with nothing extra, just Win7 clients connecting to a Server 2008 R2 Server for DHCP, DNS, AD, a few Apps + File and Print really).

    Thanks in advance...

    Select licenses for MS CALs should be the same price wherever you get them from as MS dictates the pricing. Pugh often put the price list on their site and MS have them somewhere on their site too.

    Edit: I stand corrected on this. Pugh charge £5 per cal, Academia are charging £3.38 per cal.

    They are also included in the new Microsoft EES Licensing Agreement(s)

    Of course it depends on how many computers your were originally going to buy the CALS for, but if you have a low FTE count (~£38 per FTE) it may be an alternative.
