    Quote for licensing please

    Using Academic Select.

    Can anyone beat.

    Windows 7 Pro Upgrade x 200 = £30.24 = £6048
    Media = £25
    Windows 2008 R2 Standard x 20 = £55 = £1100
    Media = £25
    (is this the only difference between Standard and Enterprise?? Windows Server 2008 R2: Compare Features )

    2008 Server Cals x 500 = £3.70 ea = £1850

    ie £9048

    Just as a point of note,

    Why do you need to Server 2008 Licenses? Are they to cover virtual machines?
    You may be better off with Enterprise in that regard as it will cover up to 4 virtual instances (and you can attach an additional license to gain another 4 if you need to, ad infinitum) Enterprice license should be around £160-170

    I dont know if your working for a school or not CyberNerd but have you considered EES? You probably have and worked out buying the licenses is your cheapest / best option but just wanted to make the suggestion....

    There will be other features that Enterprise covers. Clustering, more advanced certificate services. It just depends on your requirements but I would have thought they were the main 2.

    I had a look into EES, but I don't see the point of getting locked into a contract that is technically difficult and expensive to get out of.
    We upgrade typically every 6 yrs or so as Microsoft Software is usually too bloated for our mediocre hardware. We need a handful of Excel licenses (for SIMS) and TS Cals along with the things above. Given these facts, and that we have 250 staff, EES is more expensive than perpetual licenses and the lock-in is a major disincentive.

    I thought you would have already looked into it in honesty but never hurts to mention other options

    for 250 staff it's definitely not a cheap option on a yearly rolling contract.

    yeah. Plus I can't guarantee the budget will be there for it in subsequent years, which would leave the school in major difficulty . perpetual licensing is the way forward IMO.
