About the Microsoft Services Provider License Agreement (SPLA)

The Microsoft Services Provider License Agreement (SPLA) is for organizations that want to offer hosted software and services to end customers, such as Web hosting, hosted applications, messaging, collaboration, and platform infrastructure. SPLA partners have the ability to deliver a customized service with a flexible cost structure, no startup cost, nor up front term of commitment.

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.

SPLA gives hosting providers the flexibility to build affordable solutions with the features your customers want. Get ideas on how to make the most of SPLA licensing with white papers, webcasts, and FAQs.

Shared Computer Activation (SCA)

Learn more about SCA—a product activation mode that allows multiple Office 365 ProPlus, Project for Office 365, and Visio Pro for Office 365 users to share the same hardware. Office 365 is licensed per user, so SCA helps ensure that users accessing those three products are licensed appropriately. With this mode, the products natively support RDS scenarios and it is no longer necessary to install MSI software as a workaround.
