Access basic functionality

Access basic and advanced functionality

External Users
External Users means users that are not the customers or the customers affiliates employees, onsite contractors or onsite agents. External users may be licensed with individual CALs or an External Connector license. An External Connector License (per server) permits access to the server software by any number of external users.
Examples for available EC licenses: Windows Server 2008 R2 EC, Exchange Server 2010 Standard EC. EC licenses are not available for SQL Server 2012 and SharePoint Server.

SharePoint Server 2010 for Internet Sites (fIS)

All content, information, and applications accessible by internal users must also be accessible to external users. Customers wishing to consolidate their SharePoint Server needs under a single deployment may acquire licenses for both products, assign those licenses to the same server, and use the same running instance of the software simultaneously under both licenses.

However, customers must acquire CALs as required under the SharePoint Server 2010 use rights to access content limited to internal users.

SQL Server 2012

Licensing Model Per Core: SQL Server 2012 Enterprise and Standard
Determining the number of licenses required for SQL Server 2012 Enterprise or Standard running in the physical OSE: The customer may license based on

all of the physical cores on the server.

The number of licenses required equals the number of physical cores on the server (minimum of 4).

Licensing Model Server / CAL: SQL Server 2012 BI and Standard

SQL Server 2012 Business Intelligence can only be licensed in the Server/CAL model. SQL Server 2012 Standard can be licensed per core or alternatively in the Server/CAL model.

SQL Server Standard Edition should be deployed in the Server/CAL model in scenarios where customers can easily count users/devices and the total licensing costs are lower than using the per core licensing model.

Management Servers

System Center 2012

System Center 2012 Standard and Datacenter Editions are for managing servers (not clients).

Licenses are required only for servers being managed. No additional licenses are needed for management servers or SQL Server technology.
Each license covers up to two physical processors. Each license of SC 2012 Standard permits managing 2 virtual OSEs. Each license of SC 2012 Datacenter permits managing an unlimited number of OSEs on premises.
