What you see is what you get!
DMZ, Internet-exposed Simple web sites – MySQL as dB? File & Print Licensing Service Active Directory / LDS (cf ADAM) Virtualisation – skinny VMs
When you need to use.Net Application Servers e.g. Exchange SharePoint SQL Server Terminal Services
Simpler Application Deployment to Web Farms and UNC Shares More Secure, Reliable Application Hosting Greater Productivity Via Delegated Management and Better Tools Reduced Downtime From Faster Troubleshooting
Managed Entities Terminal Server less server, more sessions TS Licensing TS CALs that are required for each device or user to connect to a terminal server. You use TS Licensing to install, issue, and track the availability of TS CALs on a Terminal Services license server. TS Gateway Enables authorized remote users to connect to resources on an internal corporate or private network, from any Internet-connected device that can run the Remote Desktop Connection (RDC) client. The network resources can be terminal servers, terminal servers running Terminal Services RemoteApp programs, or computers with Remote Desktop enabled.
TS Session Broker Supports session load balancing between terminal servers in a farm, and reconnection to an existing session in a load-balanced terminal server farm. Note: TS Session Broker was formerly called Terminal Services Session Directory. TS Web Access Users visit a Web site (internet or) to access a list of available TS RemoteApp programs. To start a RemoteApp program, users just click the program icon. When the RemoteApp program starts, a Terminal Services session is started on the terminal server that hosts the RemoteApp program.

Server and CAL licensing model Server licence only licensing model CAL and processor licensing model
One Licence = 1 running instance in 1 Physical OS AND 1 running Virtual OSE Physical and Virtual OSE can be current or any prior version of Windows Server Standard Windows Server 2008 Standard Same as Datacenter Processor plus CAL Unlimited virtualised instances Windows Server 2008 Datacenter Itanium Licensing is now enhanced to allow any type of database software on the server software with no limit on the number of users (was previously 25) Windows Server 2008 Web Edition
Required in addition to server licence Covers access to server by "External Users Does not cover access by employees Does not cover hosting Available for: Windows Server Terminal Server Exchange Server Office Communications Server Office Project Portfolio Server Office Project Server Office Performance Point Server External Connector Internet External User Licence the server for ALL authenticated, external users CALs = 0
Server Requirements 1 x Windows Server Licence with Terminal Services enabled 1 x Office Licence* Client Requirements 6 x Office licenses 6 x Windows desktop licenses 6 x Windows Server CALs 6 x Terminal Server CALs *In VL the customer does not pay for the copy of Office on the SERVER
If the customer has 1000 devices and 50 users, and those 50 users can go to any "device", they need to have 1000 Office licenses If the customer has 1000 devices and 50 users, and those 50 users only use their own "device" and do not touch the other 950, they only need 50 Office licenses If the customer has roaming users, they must fully licence all the devices, as roaming users can log onto use or access any device available from anywhere See Licensing Brief at
10 x Datacenter or Itanium licenses Can run unlimited number of guest OSs on the Server provided all physical processors are fully licensed DataCenter & Itanium Editions also requiresCALS (hybrid of Per Processor and CAL model) Licenses Required 10 Physical Processors Windows 2008 Server DataCenter or Itanium
Physical Processors count = 0 Licenses Required Physical Processor Virtual Processor Virtual Processor count = 8 2 x Apps Center, 2 x BizTalk, 2 x ISA, 1 x Commerce Svr, 1 x Host Int Server Apps Center Apps Center BizTalkISA Commerce Server Host Int Server ISA BizTalk
