Project Server licensing and usage RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi!

    If Project Server 2010 had supported Multi-tenency this would not have been an issue, but it seem that is not possible.

    So my question is, can I let part of my users use Project Server functionality (and have SP-standard, SP-Enterprise and PS CAL's), and parts use SharePoint functionality (Standard-features) and limit the CAL's for users that only use SP-features to SharePoint Server Standard?

    Regards,

  • Yes, you can.  The way I would manage this, is to put the different users in different farms.

    Project Server Farm and this would be small and limited to the SP-ENTERPRISE.

    The rest of the company could be in a SP-STANDARD farm, where the license are cheaper,  Typically, those needing special services

    And a final farm, the free SharePoint version, where users just need to shave documents.

    cheers!

  • But this would require the customer to set up a new infrastructure (with required additional server licensing) to handle the additional farms.

    Is it possible to manage it within the same farm? For example by separating the functionality in different web applications or site collections?
