  • Key Themes:These are the key takeaways for you today on License Mobility Customers assign instances of their existing VL server licenses to run in a shared datacenter. The instance is dedicated to the customer.There is no extra cost for the customer to exercise this new flexibility: it is a Software Assurance Benefit, there are no new CALs or Mobility fees. The server license with SA in purchased regularly through the end-customer’s VL agreement, and the CALs are also purchased under that agreement (same CALs as before, only now used to access the server instance in the cloud)Available in the July 2011 in the Software Assurance benefits sectionLicense mobility is a right extended to the end-customer No amendments to end-customer VL agreements are required; the PUR conveys the new benefit.SPLA Updates? No changes required in SPLA to allow for onboarding mobility workloads. Although you will see in the coming slides that we are improving the SPLA offerings with upcoming changes to the SAL for SA offering and a new Core Infrastructure Suite, which are “better together” offerings but not requirements of License Mobility.What products are eligible for license mobility?Refer to the PUR in July for the full list. In general terms, all product categories that have rights today for “mobility within the datacenter” will have extended mobility rights to the cloudWindows Server is not mobile: the Service Provider licenses its datacenter for the OS and the end-customer consumes it as IaaS when moving  over their server workloads to the partner's datacenter. The partner licenses the infrastructure in a much more cost efficient way: one single infrastructure, shared hardware, and a single low price point regardless of what type of workload runs on that infrastructure (no longer a distinction between outsourcing or non-outsourcing)
