This product is available through the Microsoft Open Value Program. This Open Value Paid Upfront sku means that you pay the amount of the license upfront. There are no other payments (unless you decide to add on additional terms of Software Assurance). Open Value gives you the rights to the license indefinitely. Software Assurance (SA) is included for the first three years which entitles you to any new editions that are released during those three years. Software Assurance also includes 24x7 support and exclusive access to Microsoft E-learning Online. After your three year term you have the option to add on another three year term of Software Assurance to continue with access to support and the latest versions.
A User CAL permits one user (using any device) to access or use Forefront Identity Manager. User CALs are likely to be more cost effective than Device CALs if there are multiple devices per user (for example a user has a laptop and handheld computer accessing the server). A minimum of 5 CALs along with a server license is required.Note:
Other payment options are available if you're interested in paying over 2 or 3 years or if you'd like to lease the license. Please call us for more information or check out the Microsoft Open Value Buying Guide
