I currently work in a primary school.
This school is based in sefton. Now when i started this job i went with the OVS aggreement which works out to £3234 a year. Is this correct?
Also i have just spoke about getting a new server 2008 r2 license and they have said they will not sell us a server 2008 r2 license they can only sell us a 2012 one and we will then have to downgrade. Is this correct?
Regarding OVS: it depends, how many FTE staff were counted on the agreement, what is included in the agreement?
tbh if tou can get 2012 license and downgrade i would you may be happy you have the lic in 3 years time
Yes, this is normal. OVS only supplies licences for current versions, but you get automatic downgrade rights.
The real issue I have with Server 2012 licenses is that there is no Enterprise Licence, only Standard or Datacenter. Given that most of my Hyper-V hosts have 4 VMs on them, this has been a big PITA on renewal this year.
did you find visual studio price was different?
Thank you everyone. its £3234 for 87 members of staff who work over 200 hours a year.
I believe you'd just need to order 2x Standard licenses for each old Enterprise license - as standard now comes with 2x VM licenses.
