Hi People,

I'm planning to deploy SharePoint Foundation 2013 (free version) on top of Windows Server 2012 with the database connected to the SQL Server 2012 Standard.

http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/sharepoint-foundation-help/what-is-sharepoint-HA010378184.aspx

As at the moment based on my CAL on the Windows Server 2008 clustered Print and File server, I can see I have 350 CALs.

Do I need to buy the same amount of CAL to cover up for the same SharePoint access ?

Thanks

Hi,
simple answer: no - one Windows CAL for the user is sufficient - regardless if the user uses SharePoint, file server ...
(compare it with a Office license - you can use Excel + Word + PPT ...)

OK, so in this case my license is covered already :-)
That sounds great.
