For now, we are still working with the Open Value Agreement setup for our new and existing clients. Open Value Licensing still presents the best value for our clients over OEM especially for the ones that refresh their server setups every two years.

OEM does not make sense when we take the two year old SBS server that was licensed OEM and now need to license a Windows Server 2008 Standard OS which cannot be "relicensed" with an OEM license. It ends up costing our clients a lot more in the long run.

Both OEM and Open Value Licensing offer downgrade rights, but only the Open Value Licensing gives us the ability to transfer that license to another server.

The other benefit to Open Value is the ability to spread the costs over 3 payments. OEM is all upfront.
