Project Server 2013 Licensing RRS feed

  • Question

  • We are planning to deploy MS Project Server 2013. I need help to get following clarified.

    • Do we need SharePoint server licenses along with SharePoint CALs for installing Project Server 2013?
    • Do we need to buy SQL Server licenses?
    • Will the SharePoint Foundation 2013 work with Project Server 2013?
    • Is there Standard & Enterprise versions for Project Server 2013? 

    Thanks,

  • Hello, see the answers below.

    1. You will need SharePoint 2013 Enterprise server license for each SharePoint / Project Server in the farm. Users will need the PWA and SharePoint CALs to access PWA / SP
    2. Yes, you will need SQL Server licenses
    3. Project Server 2013 will not install into a SharePoint 2013 Foundation farm, it needs to be the Enterprise version
    4. There is no standard or enterprise version of Project Server, just one version. There is a Standard and Professional version of the desktop client, Project 2013. You will need Project Professional 2013 if you want to use Project 2013 and connect to Project Server 2013.

  • Hello,

    I confirm the perfect Paul's answer.

    for Project Server licensing you Needs the following licenses:

    Project Server + SharePoint Server(on the pric elist we have only one SharePoint Server license but with enterp cals you can install the Enterprise Edition) + SharePoint std + enterp cals + Project professional Client Desktop + SQL Server per cores license or Server + cals.

    sharepoint foundation not supported on Project Server.

    Note: you do not need Project Server CALs while in each Project professional Client included one Project Server CAL.

    thanks

  • No, we are considering on Premise deployment.  However, I will suggest them to also look into Project Online option.

    Thanks,

  • Hello,

    I agree to your Suggestion that the online Option is better for Project Software while it is cheaper than on premises solution.

    for online Option, you do not need other licenses requirements while there are installed by Microsoft datacenter.

    thanks
