Multiple Users on a Single OS Requires Microsoft Windows Server Licensing

For applications where multiple interactive users are simultaneously sharing a single operating system, standard Microsoft Windows Server licensing applies. This means that the shared host computer (or virtual machine) runs a Microsoft Windows Server operating system.

In addition a Microsoft Windows Server Client Access License (WS CAL) and a Microsoft Remote Desktop Services Client Access License (RDS CAL – formerly known as a Microsoft Terminal Services Client Access License or TS CAL) are required for each end-user or device that accesses Windows Server.

Also, Microsoft’s new Windows Multipoint Server 2011 can be used and requires a Windows MultiPoint Server 2011 CAL (WMS CAL) for each access device (and for the host computer if the host computer is used as a user station).* The diagram at right shows an example configuration with five users sharing a single computer running Windows MultiPoint Server 2011.

For further details on Microsoft’s multi-user licensing please refer to Microsoft’s website and licensing brief titled: “Licensing Windows Client Operating Systems in Multiuser Scenarios.”
