Microsoft Hosting U – SPLA And Cloud Training

Microsoft has a Web site dedicated to those of us building Cloud based solutions on their products:


The above shot is for beginners while below is the Expert version:


There are some interesting resources applicable to those that work with developers, Web hosts utilizing IIS for their platform, and those that run data centers.

There seems to be a lack of material for those of us that host entire virtual infrastructures for our clients.

For us, it is worth a look if not for the most current SPUR (Services Provider Use Rights) (DOC Download). As we have more time we will work our way through the site.

Some of our current SPLA based offerings:

  • Hosted SBS 2011/2008 in a Co-Lo data centre with Win7 and Office 2010 based desktops.
  • Leased equipment with SPLA licensed SBS, Win7, and Office.
  • Equipment rentals with SPLA licensed Win7 and Office.
