Licensing Virtual Server & Terminal Server Environments

This training event will help you to learn all you need to know about Microsoft® software in both Virtual Server and Terminal Server environments.

The licence terms which apply to the use of the software is complex and often misunderstood and these environments are frequently found to be non-compliant. The settlement costs can be substantial.

This course will help you to learn to identify and eliminate any compliance risks you are currently exposed to. In many cases, simple configuration changes to your environment can reduce financial risk exposure significantly without having to spend a cent. It will also help you to make informed licensing decisions which are intelligent and cost effective.
