License mobility for your Microsoft applications

Deploy your Microsoft® applications at Rackspace with confidence. If you're a Microsoft Volume Licensing (VL) customer running eligible applications covered by active Microsoft Software Assurance (SA) contracts, you can move your Microsoft applications to Rackspace at any time, without incurring additional licensing fees. Deploy on our cloud, dedicated servers, virtual servers, or a combination.

How it works

Assess your Microsoft licenses

Make sure that the application server licenses you want to deploy have active Microsoft Software Assurance (SA) coverage. The following server applications are eligible for license transfer:

  • Microsoft SQL Server® 2008 Datacenter Edition
  • Microsoft SQL Server 2008 Enterprise Edition
  • Microsoft Exchange Server 2010
  • Microsoft SharePoint® Server 2010
  • Microsoft Lync Server 2010
  • Microsoft System Center Server 2010
  • Microsoft Dynamics DRM Server

Deploy with Rackspace

Sign up for a cloud account to get access to Cloud Servers with Windows Server®. Or contact us for help moving your license to a dedicated server or virtualized environment. You can even take advantage of our hybrid cloud to combine your cloud, dedicated, and virtual environments into one custom infrastructure.

Verify your Microsoft licenses

Complete the License Verification Form available on the Microsoft Volume Licensing website within 10 days of deployment. Then, provide it to your Microsoft representative, system integrator, or Rackspace Account Team.
