System Center Endpoint Protection Use with Azure Security Center or Microsoft Defender for Endpoint
Customer may use System Center Endpoint Protection to manage Virtual OSEs it is protecting using the Standard tier of Azure Security Center or Microsoft Defender for Endpoint. The System Center License Terms, as amended here, govern that use. Managed Virtual OSEs can be running on shared or dedicated Servers. Customer is not required to acquire and assign System Center Licenses for this limited use.
SQL Server Technology
Customer may run any number of Instances of any SQL Server database software included in the Product in one OSE on a Server dedicated to Customer’s use for the limited purpose of supporting that Product and any other Product that includes SQL Server database software. Servers that are under the management or control of an entity other than Customer or one of its Affiliates are subject to the Outsourcing Software Management clause.
Windows Server Containers
The Management License version, not the version of software used, determines the version of applicable License Terms (including use under downgrade rights notwithstanding terms to the contrary).
Server Management Licenses (per core)
- Customer may use the software on Azure or a Server to Manage OSEs on a Licensed Server, provided it acquires sufficient Server Licenses as described below.
- The number of Licenses required equals the number of Physical Cores on the Licensed Server, subject to a minimum of 8 Licenses per Physical Processor and a minimum of 16 Licenses per Server.
- Datacenter edition permits use of the server software to Manage any number of OSEs on the Licensed Server.
- Standard edition:
- Standard edition permits use of the software to Manage up to two OSEs on the Licensed Server.
- Standard edition permits Management of the Physical OSE on the Licensed Server (in addition to two Virtual OSEs), if the Physical OSE is used solely to host and Manage Virtual OSEs.

Client Management Licenses (per OSE or user)
- Customer may use the software on Azure or a Server* to Manage an OSE on a Licensed Device or OSEs on devices used by a Licensed User for each Client Management License it acquires.
- OSEs running operating systems other than Server operating systems require Client Management Licenses or Management License Equivalent Licenses.
- The number of Client Management Licenses required depends on License type (per OSE or user) assigned.

- Any of Customer’s network infrastructure devices functioning solely for the purpose of transmitting network data and not running Windows Server software;
- Conversion of OSEs from Physical to Virtual; or
