Open Value Subscription for Education Solutions is a commitment-based Microsoft volume licensing agreement for academic organizations with five or more FTEs or students who wish to license a company-wide license. Software Assurance is included in the delivery. The backup instance can only be executed in the following exceptional periods: self-taken applications mean products that have self-recognized rights. With an indeterminate license, you pay for the license and you have the right to use the software indefinitely. The best way to describe the subscription license agreement is not to be unlimited in time, as you are not allowed to use the products as long as you pay for your subscription. Non-permanent licensing agreements can be a great way to minimize upfront costs and spread payments over the duration of the agreement, although you want to learn about Microsoft® Payment Solutions (aka Microsoft® Financing) if you see a subscription only as a way to write off payments. For any instance of legitimate server software run by the client in a physical OSE or virtual operating system on a licensed server, it may temporarily run a backup instance in an OSE or virtual physical operating system on another emergency recovery server or, for instances using software other than Windows Server, on Microsoft Azure Services, provided that the Azure Site Recovery backup instance is managed at Azure. The software`s licensing conditions and the following restrictions apply to the customer`s use of the backup instance. Microsoft Products and Services Agreement (MPSA) is a transaction licensing agreement for commercial, government and academic organizations with 250 or more users/devices. MPSA is most appropriate for organizations that wish to license Microsoft for software, cloud services or needs, without organizational-wide obligations or multi-year subscription options under a single agreement that does not expire. Software Assurance is optional. Microsoft Cloud Agreement (MCA) is a transaction licensing agreement for commercial and government organizations that want to outsource the management of their entire cloud services through a cloud solutions provider (CSP). Customers can renew SA under another volume licensing program by acquiring SA as part of an existing open value agreement, MPSA, Select, Select Plus or Enterprise registration.
For customers who re-acquired SA as part of a business registration, this exemption applies only to additional products and products that do not go beyond a company-wide obligation.
