Suites and CALs – What do you actually get?

Ever wondered what each of the CAL “suites” contains, wonder no more, below is the overview in a very handy table of the actual CALs you get per suite

 

Couple of points to note:

  • Core CAL and Enterprise CAL Suite are always sold with Software Assurance<SA> so they are technically version-less
  • Core CAL suite are all Standard CALs
  • Enterprise CAL Suite contains Standard and Enterprise CALs
  • Core CAL and Enterprise CAL Suite contain additive CALs, so if you want Enterprise functionality, you need the Standard CAL + the Enterprise CAL
  • EBS Premium and SBS Premium suite contain SQL CALs
  • EBS and SBS are NOT additive, you buy Standard CALs for all and Premium CALs only for those users/devices accessing SQL
