  • Technet subscription - testing evaluating server OS

    Dear

    I am looking for a cheap way to test server OS in test environment. Win2008 Win2008R2. Later on maybe also other Microsoft products (virtualisation, ...)
    I think technet subscription covers this material. Is anyone familiar with this. When i have a Technet Subscription Professional it should be possible to download server OS software to use in test environments without having to deal evaluation periods?

    regards

    Correct -- Technet Plus gives you full licenses for almost all MS products (except development tools) for testing and evaluation only -- not commercial use

      Thanks!

      Is there also a possibility to use "test" licences for 1 product for a smaller price. For example if I only want to test with Windows 2008 Server and Windows 2008 R2 Server.

      With the professional subscription you pay about 262. To test 1 product it is still rather expensive.

        Depending on how long you want to test I think you get 30 days before you need to activate.

          There are some 180 day evaluation versions around too, and MS do Virtual versions of some servers for testing

          But IMHO you are getting amazing value for money with Technet Plus -- about 200 separate products
