Hi

We are implementing MS SharePoint as a document management system and Intranet for our staff we have 20 users.

We are considering the following options

1) Get a Virtual Server Hosted on GoDaddy etc and set up SharePoint Foundation on it. Do I need to buy 20 CAL separately for each user?

2) Use Azure Cloud by Microsoft for SharePoint. I am not sure how the licensing work?

3) Get SharePoint Online from $4.40 per user per month that will be 20 x $4.40 = $88 per month

Does anyone have any suggestions which options are best and more cost effective.

Thanks

I would say Office 365 - no worrying about CAL's, simplified administration and for everything  you are gettings, it actually is quite a good deal.  I have an O365 E3 account and I would say at this rate, if it provides the tools your company requires, that you can sustain about 30-50 users before it starts becoming more affordable to host your own.

Option 3 for two reasons:

1. Maintenance
2. Pricing
