Windows Server 2012 empowers IT to help ensure people’s access to their personalized work environment from
virtually anywhere. Whether you are an enterprise, a small or medium-sized business, or a hosting provider,
Windows Server 2012 will help you cloud optimize your IT.
With the User CAL, you purchase a CAL for every
user who accesses the server to use services such as file storage or printing,
regardless of the number of devices they use for that access. Purchasing a User
CAL might make more sense if your company employees need to have roaming access
to the corporate network using multiple devices, or from unknown devices, or
simply have more devices than users in your organization. With a Device CAL, you
purchase a CAL for every device that accesses your server, regardless of the
number of users who use that device to access the server. Device CALs may make
more economic and administrative sense if your company has workers who share
devices, for example, on different work shifts.
