Customers interested in purchasing our SUNDE zero clients for terminal services are required to buy the Microsoft Windows Server License in prior to deployment. Multi-user solutions require both Windows Server Client Access License (WS CAL) and Remote Desktop Services CAL (RDS CAL) in order to stay remotely connected to a graphical user interface through the SUNDE terminal services solution.
Multi-interactions can also be gained through the Windows MultiPoint Server 2011 by the SUNDE users. They can be obtained in Standard and Premium forms and requires Windows Server 2008 CAL and Windows MultiPoint Server 2011 CAL to stay connected to the OS. Both device and user variants of the RDS CAL and WMS CAL prevail to suit the best CAL purchase needs of the SUNDE users.
While deploying zero clients for terminal services from SUNDE, the required licenses mentioned above must be purchased from Microsoft Windows. It is significant to note that Microsoft’s license policy varies between countries and SUNDE users are requested to refer to their local Microsoft’s partners before purchase.
For further details on Microsoft’s multi-user licensing please refer to Microsoft’s website or licensing brief titled: “Licensing Windows Client Operating Systems in Multiuser Scenarios“.
