microsoft licensing channels
Microsoft Licensing Channels
  • Microsoft have several different licensing channels which each serve different types of customer (System Builder, Volume Licensing, Enterprise Agreement…..)
  • Many products are sold through more than one channel
  • Each channel has its own unique set of rules, restrictions, and benefits, and is designed to meet the needs of different types of customer
  • Selecting the appropriate channel for your needs depends upon many factors
  • IT IS COMPLICATED 
  • Arrow and the Microsoft Windows Embedded Business are here to support OEMs who wish to use Microsoft technology in their specialised devices
  • That includes giving you access to Microsoft experts who have the big picture and can give impartial advice about which channel meets your needs

But what is a Windows Embedded device?
  • The key question: how does an end-user see your final product ?
  • The embedded user sees a device and the desktop OS user sees a computer.

Key Benefits of Windows Embedded
  • Guaranteed long term product availability
  • Guaranteed long term product support
  • Optimized for OEMs building integrated hardware / software solutions
  • Ease of deployment and OEM activation
  • Possibilities of customized Recovery Medias
  • Access to Virtualization features
  • Ship anywhere with very few exceptions
  • Some products available ONLY from Embedded Channel
  • Multiple Language support

All products sold through the Windows Embedded Channel are available for at least 15 years from release. For example we continue to supply runtimes for Server 2003, XP Pro, NT 4.0, MS-DOS 6.22, Windows CE 2.12, and many other products which are no longer available elsewhere.

The Windows Embedded channel is the only option for many legacy products

The Microsoft Support Lifecycle Policy guarantees five years of mainstream support and five years of extended support for Windows Embedded products after release — a total of 10 years of support.

Windows Embedded extended support gives you access to Security Updates, Hotfixes and QFEs

Unlike a general purpose PC or Server device, a Windows Embedded device is defined as one which includes the hardware, the Operating System AND the specialist Application software.

Products built on Windows Embedded can be tailored to the exact needs of the application and be presented by the Embedded OEM as complete solutions, not general purpose computers.

Many Windows Embedded products do not require per device activation. For those which do, an Embedded OEM has the opportunity to apply for OEM Activation, removing the need for per device activation during your production process.

Arrow have an OEM Activation implementation service – see later slide

  • Multiple Language support

An Embedded OEM, if they wish, is allowed to create a recovery CD (or other media such as a USB Flash disk) so that the end customer can easily reinstall the original OS image in case of a failure in the field.

The media can contain not only the OS, but also the OEM application, and can even be branded by the OEM to increase the perceived value of the solution.

Virtualization is used most often in Server solutions when multiple virtual resources are created against an emulation layer that makes them believe they have exclusive access to the underlying hardware. OEMs are using this technology to save cost, enable high availability, long lifecycles, simplify development and installation.

In the Windows Embedded channel, our licensing enables our OEMs to run 2 virtual instances of Windows on top of a Standard Edition Windows Server OS.

“Under the terms of the Microsoft OEM System Builder License, you acknowledge and agree that you will not export the packages and individual software licenses to locations outside of this territory. “

The above warning applies to OEMs who purchase from the System Builder channel. Full details here.

An Embedded OEM can legally ship their products to most of the planet. This is because Microsoft realise that an Embedded device is not like a PC or general purpose Server, and your needs are different from those of a PC or Server OEM!!!!

The Windows Embedded product family includes unique offerings such as Windows Embedded Standard, Compact and POSReady. These specialist products allow complete customisation of the OS to suit your needs, and to differentiate the OEM offering.

In the Windows Embedded Server family there are also unique products including “Telco” and “Essentials” editions, and versions of SQL priced at very attractive levels compared to other channels

The license terms of Windows Embedded permit the OEM to build a product which includes multiple languages in a single OS build.

The “Multi User Interface” pack (MUI) solution is available for many Client and Server Windows Embedded products and gives the OEM the possibility to purchase one version of the runtime license and deploy any combination of language support.
