Exchange 2010 licensing information starts appearing

October 28th, 2009 | Tags:

With Exchange 2010 launch events taking place and TechEd Berlin a few weeks away, more Exchange information is being released by Microsoft’s product teams.

A recent blog post on Microsoft’s Unified Communications Blog discloses licensing information:

“All of the specifics around pricing and licensing will be available when we launch, but just to give you an idea, a customer buying a new license will pay about $55 for Standard CAL and about $35 for Enterprise CAL.  Existing customers with Software Assurance, of course, only pay for the renewal of Software Assurance, so this price is much lower.  And for the servers, a typical customer can expect to pay about $550 for Standard Server and $3200 for Enterprise Server.  As you know, pricing depends on the license type you choose, and if you buy via one of the CAL suites further discounts apply, so definitely take this as a ballpark vs absolute.  As always, your reseller partner or Microsoft rep can get you the specifics on pricing once Exchange 2010 is available. “
