The Services Provider License Agreement (SPLA)
Program allows an organization to license
Microsoft products and use them to provide
software services to its customers.
A three-year agreement term that can be
extended.
Payment terms:
• Monthly reporting and payment based on use
• Sku price protection (As long as the product is not
available in the price list and was reported during the
agreement)
•
The SPLA makes offering software services simple
because you, not the customer, are the licensee.

Subscriber Access License
A SAL is required for each individual user or device that is
authorized to access or otherwise use the software:
A SAL is generally required for each individual who is authorized to use the
software in any given month.
•
When using the SAL option, a separate Server License is not needed.
* Not all products are available to be licensed in the SAL mode. Examples of
products licensed with a SAL: Microsoft SQL Server, Microsoft Exchange
Server, Microsoft Office, and Microsoft Dynamics business software.
Benefits of the Per Subscriber model include the following:
* Subscribers can access any number of servers.
* Service providers can "scale out.”
* Service providers have minimal start-up costs.
