Upcoming change to Microsoft license pricing
Microsoft has recently increased their licencing pricing across their suite of services, a change which generally occurs on an annual or biannual basis. While we do our best to absorb the vast majority of those changes in costs, ensuring consistent and affordable pricing, we occasionally must adjust our pricing in line with the increases from our suppliers.
Commencing February 7 2019, the following price adjustments will occur for Microsoft software licences on all current and new services:
|License Type||As of January 2019||Commencing February 2019|
|Office Professional Plus SAL – Per User||$26.00||$31.20|
|Office Standard SAL – Per User||$20.00||$24.00|
|SQL Svr Standard Edition – 2 Core||$235.00||$282.00|
|SQL Svr Web Edition – 2 Core||$18.00||$21.60|
|Windows Remote Desktop Services||$8.00||$9.60|
|Windows Server Datacentre PL||$55.00||$66.00|
|Windows Server Standard PL||$8.75||$10.50|
The licence prices listed are monthly.
We thank you for your continued trust in our services, as this is the first time we have passed on a Microsoft pricing increase in more than 4 years.
