Licensing question for using virtual machines on laptops RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi folks this is regarding using virtual machines on individual laptops.

    In my scenario I have a department where there are around 20 employees each having Dell laptops with Windows 7 OEM on it.We do not have volume licenses within the company. We are planning to create a virtual machine to run on Win 7 OS and distribute it to the 20 users. They will use VMware workstation or Oracle Virtualbox to run these virtual machine individually on their laptops.

    My question is for this scenario what sort of a license would i need so these virtual machines are licenses correctly.

    Would it be individual retail licenses or  volume license with software assurance and how many VL. Thank you
