The following information describes what components (typically) you will need to purchase for our hosted solution and what these are for
Microsoft Windows CAL - A "CAL" is Client Access License and Microsoft require a Windows CAL if you are connecting to any server in our Data Centre. You can connect to as many servers and services as you wish however in most cases you will require one of these CAL's.
Microsoft Remote Desktop CAL - Microsoft require one of these if you plan to run an application using Remote Desktop Services in our Data Centre, this includes Remote App and WebApp. You can connect to as many Remote Desktop Servers you wish however in all cases you will require one of these CAL's to run a hosted application e.g. Sage, Office Visio Project.
Microsoft Exchange CAL - Microsoft require one of these licenses to access a Microsoft Exchange Server. With a Full Exchange CAL you will receive the latest version of Outlook as part of this and can upgrade to new releases of Outlook for the duration of your hosted exchange solution with Your Office Anywhere. We include (typically) with this CAL 2GB of mail storage, access to Outlook Web Access and Access via Windows Mobile Devices (smart phones, Apple iPhones etc.)
SQL Server CAL - Microsoft require one of these licenses to access a SQL Server Database. If your application requires a SQL Server and you wish to use our dedicated SQL Server hardware you will require a SQL Server CAL for each user that runs the application that accesses SQL server. If your application uses Microsoft SQL Server Express then this licenses is NOT required
Microsoft Office Standard or Professional CAL - Microsoft requires an Office CAL to run the various versions of Office in our Hosted Environment. Typically a user will choose Word, Excel and Outlook (Office Standard), however we are able to provide any combination of Office - Standard, Professional etc. Note that if you only require Word, or Excel, or PowerPoint, or Outlook or Access, we can provide a CAL for individual office applications and therefore you may not need to license the whole Office suite.
Microsoft SharePoint CAL - Microsoft require a Sharepoint CAL to access Microsoft SharePoint. Typically we will provide 1GB of storage with each SharePoint CAL which is aggregated across the whole company. So for example if you have 9 users who wish to access documents in Microsoft Sharepoint you would require 9 CAL's and would receive 9GB of disk space for your document management system.
Remote Application Hosting – 1st Hosted Application, Remote Application Hosting – Additional Hosted Application . For each application that runs on our remote desktop servers as a hosted application e.g. Sage, Office or Line of Business Application, this application requires processing power, memory and disk resources on the server. We charge a Remote Application Hosting fee for this and this is typically charged per application. For some applications such as Office, which contains multiple applications, we charge only 1 Remote Application Hosting Fee, but most applications require a Remote Application Hosting fee on a per user per application basis.
Oneoff SetupFee - Typically for a Remote Desktop server a one off fee is paid for provisioning the server.
Disk Space - Additional Disk space can be purchased per 1GB of storage, with a tiered pricing structure offering cheaper rates the more disk is rented. Please ask for current pricing
