This is a Microsoft Windows Server 2012 License 1 user CAL OLP. Usually Systems Admin or IT Managers will purchase these to be compliant with Windows Server Licensing, in windows server based IT environments. I find that Tech Supply Shop usually has the same price, if not a bit cheaper than others so I usually get them from Tech Supply Shop. As for the performance of the product, they do indeed get you compliant with MS as my recent licensing audit will attest to. MS licensing can be confusing, so if you are unsure about what you need you should conduct with a MS partner or MS themselves before buying anything.
We set this up on a utility server and also set up a brand new exchange 2012 server using Microsoft Windows Server 2012 License 1 user CAL OLP. I have to say the install was a breeze. I set aside way more time than I needed for this install and glad it did not take too long. The containers functionality is fantastic! Overall I think this is one of the best Server OS's yet.
It was time to upgrade my home server which was running Server 2008 r2. I decided to pay the price for an authorized copy. Microsoft Windows Server 2012 License 1 user CAL OLP version comes with a product key that is difficult to reveal. Although the instructions say to peal back the tape covering the tiny product key label, this method might pull off the printing with the tape, leaving the product key unreadable. I used an alternate method that worked fairly well. Get some strong reading glasses and find a well-lit working surface. Use the edge of a US dime to GENTLY scrap back the opaque coating on the tape, leaving the transparent tape underneath intact. Use a tooth pick to clear any indented areas, which are sure to be there. The minute that you can read all of the characters in the key, STOP. Use your phone to take a closeup picture of the product key, which you can easily read and write down the key on the same card for future reference. Be careful of Bs and 8s or any other character that can be confused with a similar character. If you don't take care or if you are in a hurry, you could easily damage the product key rendering it unreadable. If you can't read the key, you will have to call Microsoft to get a new key. That being said, I had no problem exposing the product key and the installation completed flawlessly. Always save and file away your purchasing records. If you ever get audited, only your purchasing records will prove that you own the software, not the product key.
