SAMexpert Microsoft Licensing Experts
Microsoft Windows Server licensing is not rocket science. There are a few rules that you need to remember, and as soon as you do, the calculations are easy... Until it comes to purchasing the licences and calculating compliance.

The problem lies with how the licences are sold. They are only available as 2-core packs and 16-core packs. And thus, some dodgy sales people use that confusion to their advantage to push-sell you more licences than you need.

Are 16-core packs "breakable"? Can you assign, say, half of licences to one server, and the rest to another? Let's look into that together.

Warning: dodgy licence sales people may find this video offending their sensitive feelings.

WHAT'S IN IT FOR YOU?

Whether you are in private or public sector, you will be in a better position to optimise your licensing and cloud costs (without wrecking IT operations), negotiate better vendor contracts and agreements, defend your ground in software vendor audits, and integrate complex SAM solutions and services to make them actually work.

My name is Alexander Golev. I'm obsessed with optimising your licensing and cloud budget and negotiating the best possible deals on your behalf.

I have been an independent SAM and licensing consultant since circa 2005, working with enterprise customers all around the world.

All that you see and hear on this channel is a product of all these years of hands-on experience.

YOU DON'T HAVE TO BELIEVE THE NEXT FACT, BUT

The total money I saved to customers like you and defended in audits is over 1 billion USD.
