Windows Client Access License (CAL) Decision Tool.

Windows Client Access License (CAL) Decision Tool

Use this tool to help evaluate the best way to license CALs for your organization.


1. Approximately how many users (i.e., employees or onsite contractors) access your server(s)?

2. What type of CAL are you licensing today?

User CAL

Each User CAL permits one user, using any device, to access licensed servers.

Device CAL

Each Device CAL permits one device (e.g., PC, smartphone, tablet, etc.) used by any user, to access licensed servers.

Mix of User & Device CALs

Don't Know

I'm not sure what type of CAL I'm licensing today or I don't have any existing CALs.
* See the Product Use Rights (PUR) for more information on assigning CALs.
