Microsoft Open License software can be purchased with Software Assurance (“SA”) which gives your business rights to new versions of the software released during your SA term.  The initial SA term is two years and it can be renewed after the initial two year term.   There are certain periods of time when this is a tremendous value and now is one of those times.  Any business purchasing Server 2012 R2 or SQL 2012 licensing should absolutely consider adding SA to the order because SQL 2016 will be released on June 1, 2016 and Server 2016 is due out later this year.  For the incremental cost of SA you are in effect pre-buying the soon to be released versions at a HUGE discount.  Talk with your Microsoft partner about when to purchase Software Assurance (SA) or give Go West a call.  We will be happy to give you guidance on they best way to purchase your Microsoft licensing.
