The SPLA models


Subscriber Access License (SAL)

SAL subscribers can access any number of servers from any number of devices, and can "scale out" by deploying as many servers as they need. 


Processor License (CPU)

CPU licenses are easier to monitor and count, they replace Internet Connector licenses which eliminates the need to distinguish between Internet, intranet and extranet users.
