Windows Server 2019 - 1 Device CAL


The Microsoft Windows Server 2019 Device CAL is a special type of licence for companies to give staff access to Windows Server 2019. The purchase of additional Device CALs also makes it possible to expand your server system with additional devices. Companies can then set up a requirements-based, flexible, high-performance server system with no major problems, deploying their resources sparingly.

What's so special about Microsoft Windows Server 2019 Device CAL?

Companies acquiring a so-called device licence are entitled to install Microsoft Windows Server 2019 on a specific device. This can be a desktop PC, notebook, scanner or control centre. Conversely, it also means that Device CALs are allocated to a specific device and cannot be subsequently transferred to another device. This is not a so-called floating licence.

The advantage of this licensing variant is that the licensed device can be used by any user, as no further user licences have to be purchased. A Microsoft Windows Server 2019 Device CAL enables employees to access existing Windows Server 2016 systems. However, it is not possible to access Server 2019 via 2016 system CALs.

Flexible and requirements-based system architecture

A major advantage of the Client Access Licence model is its requirements-based use. The licence structure owes this feature to the free combinability of device licences and user licences. These are available on an individual basis and in licence packages, permitting a cost-efficient set up of a customised server system. It's quite easy to furnish device licences to stationery offices and provide employees frequently working from a home office with User CALs, allowing them to access all required data regardless of their location.

Major innovations from Windows Server 2019

Buying a Microsoft Windows Server 2019 Device CAL is a convenient way to plan a server system from scratch or to expand it as you wish. Staff then have total access to the high performance and safety features of the current server operating system from Microsoft.

  • Windows subsystem for Linux: Microsoft has considerably improved the integration of Linux in the current server version. This takes place via improved safety concepts such as “Shielded VMs” and by the ability to administer Linux servers from the level of Windows Servers using Linux commands. Another benefit is the integration of Linux distributions into the Windows installation.
  • Interconnection with Microsoft Azure: In addition to simplified data synchronisation, more efficient cooperation with Microsoft Azure allows Windows Server 2019 easy data backup via Azure Backup.
  • Better all-round protection: To optimise the protection of essential data, Microsoft has been working on the encryption of data and file servers. This measure is supplemented by way of direct cooperation between the server operating system and Windows Defender Advanced Threat Protection (ATP). The system will then recognise threats such as Root Kits and Zero-Day attacks, which many conventional anti-virus programmes fail to identify.
  • Express Updates: When you switch over to Windows Server 2019, lengthy downloads, time-consuming installations and constant new starts become a thing of the past. As in the Windows 10 desktop operating system, Microsoft has included the usual Express Updates.
