***WARNING*** Open Value License Costs Up Oct. 1

Please verify your SBS 2008 R2 pricing with your distribution contacts.

We received a note this afternoon indicating that Open Value licensing costs for SBS 2K3 versions and CALs will be rising October 1, 2008.

From what we can see, the SBS 2K3 R2 Premium first year payment on an Open Value Spread Payment Agreement will increase by approximately $450 after October 1, 2008. Your numbers will vary by locale.

Once you have contacted your licensing contact at your favourite distributor to confirm, make sure to keep the pricing change in mind when quoting.

Folks, this is another great reason to sell OVL before October first!

Please comment on what you find out from your distribution contacts. We would appreciate the feedback ... even if the info we have received is bunk! :)
