Who is SPLA for?

The SPLA is for organizations that want to offer hosted software and services to customers, such as web hosting, hosted applications, messaging, collaboration, and platform infrastructure. Licensing model Licenses under the SPLA are subscription licenses that can be used during the agreement term.

Per subscriber. A Subscriber Access License (SAL) is required for each unique individual user or device that is authorized to access or otherwise use the licensed products. You do not need a separate server license.

Per core. Each Core License (CL) allows an unlimited number of users to access the server software installed on the licensed server with a determined number of physical cores for products licensed through a per-core model.

Per proc. Each Processor License allows an unlimited number of users to access the product that is installed on the server without a separate SAL.
