Licensing in Any World

Servers, Vendors March 14th, 2011

Brian Lewis (IT Pro Evangelist for Microsoft) recently blogged about licensing in a virtual world.  He made some interesting points about Datacenter edition licensing as VM density grows.

All that talk of licensing reminded me of a tool I’ve used to manage and license machines in my network – the Volume Activation Management Tool (VAMT) version 2.0.  Version 2.0 has some updated features, including managing Office 2010 licensing in addition to Server 2008 R2 and Windows 7.  There is a version 1.1 of the tool that will manage licensing for Vista, Server 2008, Win 7, and Server 2008 R2.
