Microsoft SQL Server Quotation Item

Dear Expert,

In the price list from Microsoft webiste for SQL server license. It says
"SQL Svr Standard Edtn Sngl Lic/SA Pack OLP NL 1 Proc Lic".

May I know what is the meaning of "SA Pack" and "OLP NL"?
From my understanding, Sngl is "Single Language License", and "1 Proc" is "1 processor license". Is it right?

Thank you very much.

OLP NL   = Open License Program / No Level  (The No level designates that there is no bulk discounts)

SA Pack   = System Administration Pack

Lic/SA Pack =       LICENSE & SOFTWARE ASSURANCE

OLP = Open License Program

Microsoft Open License is a Volume Licensing program for small to midsize organizations that have fewer than 250 desktop PCs. The program provides a simple, flexible, and cost-effective way to buy the latest Microsoft technology to meet your organization's needs and procurement procedures.

NL = No Level

Some Microsoft Volume License programs have "Levels", which are basically bulk discounts. Some other companies call these "price bands". Depending on the number of licenses purchased at once, discounts get applied. If you don't purchase enough for a discount, this is called No Level or NL.

For example, Microsoft Exchange Server 2007 Standard CAL has two discount Levels: No Level - for 1 to 49 users, Level C - for 50+ users

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

Actually SA pack is 'Server Access Pack', which means it covers one license to access the server!

Is that where it's originally from?  I had it in an email from a friend who I asked about the acronyms once.
