License Microsoft software to offer a complete portfolio of services

With the Microsoft Services Provider License Agreement (SPLA), there are no upfront costs. There is a $100 minimum after the first six months. You pay only for the access to the software you provide on a monthly basis; you have access to the latest versions of software; and you can sell your services worldwide.

Microsoft SPLA is the only Microsoft Volume Licensing program that allows Microsoft products to be used for commercial hosting.

To be eligible for SPLA, you should be enrolled in the Microsoft Partner Network.
