OEM Microsoft Server software. New short video answers top questions about adding Software Assurance.


Ever wondered if you could add Software Assurance to an OEM Server License? Or if you can, when can you do so? Also, why would you want to? What happens if you do? What happens if you don’t?

These are common questions we receive and in order to help alleviate these concerns and address these questions, I have posted a short 4 1/2 minute video that walks through both scenarios using online examples to answer these questions for you. So take a few minutes to view the, “Adding Software Assurance to OEM Servers. When, how, and why?” video I put together to explain how this works.

Thank you and have a wonderful day,
