MICROSOFT SOFTWARE LICENSE TERMS
MICROSOFT COMPUTE CLUSTER PACK
These license terms are an agreement between Microsoft Corporation (or based on where you live, one of its affiliates) and you. Please read them. They apply to the software named above, which includes the media on which you received it, if any. The terms also apply to any Microsoft
Internet-based services, and
for this software, unless other terms accompany those items. If so, those terms apply.
BY USING THE SOFTWARE, YOU ACCEPT THESE TERMS. IF YOU DO NOT ACCEPT THEM, DO NOT USE THE SOFTWARE. INSTEAD, RETURN IT TO THE RETAILER FOR A REFUND OR CREDIT. If you cannot obtain a refund there, contact Microsoft or the Microsoft affiliate serving your country for information about Microsoft’s refund policies. See www.microsoft.com/worldwide.

Software. The software includes
Server software; and
Additional software that may only be used with the server software directly, or indirectly through other additional software.
License Model. The software is licensed based on
The number of instances of server software that you run.
Terms for Use with Virtualization Technologies.
Instance. You create an “instance” of software by executing the software’s setup or install procedure. You also create an instance of software by duplicating an existing instance. References to software in this agreement include “instances” of the software.
Run an Instance. You “run an instance” of software by loading it into memory and executing one or more of its instructions. Once running, an instance is considered to be running (whether or not its instructions continue to execute) until it is removed from memory.
Operating System Environment. An “operating system environment” is one instance of an operating system and instances of applications, if any, configured to run on that operating system instance. There are two types of operating system environments, physical and virtual. A physical operating system environment is configured to run directly on a physical hardware system. A virtual operating system environment is configured to run on a virtual (or otherwise emulated) hardware system. A physical hardware system can have either or both of the following:
one physical operating system environment
one or more virtual operating system environments.
Server. A server is a physical hardware system capable of running server software. A hardware partition or blade is considered to be a separate physical hardware system.
Assigning a Software License. To assign a software license means simply to designate that license to one server.
Assigning the License to the Server.
Before you run any instance of the server software under a software license, you must assign that license to one of your servers. That server is the licensed server for that particular license. You may assign other software licenses to the same server, but you may not assign the same license to more than one server. A hardware partition or blade is considered to be a separate server.
You may reassign a software license, but not within 90 days of the last assignment. You may reassign a software license sooner if you retire the licensed server due to permanent hardware failure. If you reassign a license, the server to which you reassign the license becomes the new licensed server for that license.
Running Instances of the Server Software. You may run, at any one time, one instance of the server software in one physical or virtual operating system environment on the licensed server.
Running Instances of the Additional Software. You may run or otherwise use any number of instances of additional software listed below in physical or virtual operating system environments on any number of devices. You may use additional software only with the server software directly, or indirectly through other additional software.
