New HPE OEM SKUs for Microsoft Windows Server 2012 R2

Xani

We are excited to announce new HPE OEM Microsoft® Windows Server® licensing options designed to help businesses increase virtualization and IT flexibility. These new SKU / part numbers include: Windows Server 2012 R2 Standard Additional License After Point of Sale (APOS) and Windows Server 2012 R2 Datacenter license with reassignment rights.

Windows Server 2012 R2 Standard Additional license After Point of Sale (APOS)

Businesses are increasingly using virtualization to drive efficiency and reduce cost. However, not all customers plan ahead and buy Windows Server Datacenter to support unlimited VMs. Most start with one copy of Windows Server Standard, as their need for more VMs grows, they don’t have an easy way to add additional licenses, also known as stacking licenses.

Windows Server Standard Additional APOS Licenses help customers scale their businesses based on need, while maintaining license compliancy.

  • APOS Additional Licenses may be sold to run on servers that have a base license of either Windows Server 2012 Standard or Windows Server 2012 Standard R2
  • Each APOS Additional License provides rights to two additional VMs and two additional CPUs
  • APOS Additional Licenses can be reassigned to another physical server that has a WS2012/R2 Standard Base License
  • Reassigning APOS Additional Licenses to another server can be done once every 90 days

Windows Server 2012 R2 Datacenter License with Reassignment Rights

This is a great option for customers buying new hardware that have large existing virtual capacity and want to protect their investment and have the flexibility to move their licenses.  This license option allows customers to reassign (move) the operating system (OS) license to another server for any reason (hardware failure, maintenance, upgrade etc.) and has the lowest TCO for customers with the most demanding IT environments.
