Microsoft Licensing

ServerCloud is a Microsoft SPLA partner which allows it to license Microsoft products on a monthly basis to customers with service on its infrastructure. Microsoft SPLA (Services Provider License Agreement) is a licensing program designed for service providers and independent software vendors (ISVs) who want to offer hosting services to their customers using Microsoft products.

Under the SPLA program, service providers and ISVs can license Microsoft products on a monthly basis and offer them as part of their hosted services. These products include server products such as Windows Server and SQL Server, as well as desktop products like Office and Windows.

The SPLA program allows service providers and ISVs to offer their customers a flexible, pay-as-you-go pricing model for using Microsoft products. This can be an attractive option for customers who don’t want to make a large upfront investment in software licenses or who want to scale their use of Microsoft products up or down as needed.

To participate in the SPLA program like ServerCloud, service providers and ISVs must enter into a licensing agreement with Microsoft and agree to certain terms and conditions. They must also report their monthly usage of Microsoft products to Microsoft and pay the appropriate fees.
