Microsoft’s SPLA Services (Service Provider License Agreement) are actually meant to replace the process of purchasing the usual box every few years, and instead the customer receives licensing to use the software as if he was purchasing exactly the same box. These services are meant for every customer, big and small, and they enable you to provide software services to endpoint customers from everywhere in the world, where distribution is legally allowed. There are over 5,000 different types of services and possibilities for renting license from Microsoft, such as Windows Server, Windows Server Datacenter, Remote Desktop Services, Office, SQL Server, SharePoint, Dynamics CRM and Visual Studio Professional. The obvious advantages of SPLA services are monthly payment method, flexibility in adding or removing licenses, working with the latest version of the software, working in a cloud environment and working with SA (Software Assurance).
