Service Provider License Agreement Program Requirements

Like the ISV licensing requirements, there are certain requirements that need to be met to qualify for cost savings found in the Service Provider License Agreement (SPLA) Program.

1-      Your organization must be enrolled in the Microsoft Partner Program as a Certified Partner for a Registered Member in the Hosting Program.

2-      You must also comply with the Services Provider Use Rights and export requirements.  In addition, as an ISV, you must provide technical support for licensed products delivered to customers.

3-      Monthly reports on licenses are expected, regardless of activity.

Licenses acquired under the SPLA are monthly, non-perpetual licenses that can be used during the term of the agreement and is available through two models:

  • Subscriber Access License (SAL). A Subscriber Access License (SAL) is required for each unique individual user or device that is authorized to access or otherwise use the licensed products. With the SAL option, you don’t need a separate Server License.
  • Per Processor License. Each Processor License allows an unlimited number of users to access the software that is installed on that processor for products licensed through a per processor model.
  • The complexity of Microsoft licensing models – or any other software vendor for that matter – is constantly in flux.  However, some truths remain the same: licensing rules are complex and constantly changing.
