Microsoft Volume licensing is Microsoft’s former platform for license distribution to businesses. Volume Licensing has now migrated to the Microsoft 365 admin center and is now called the Microsoft CSP Program. This means that all subscription and perpetual licenses can be accessed from the same platform. The same benefits and accessibility which comes with Volume Licensing is now available in the Microsoft CSP Program. No longer needing to keep track of the license keys manually or losing the keys once a machine has been lost, damaged, or stolen. Prior to volume licensing (now Microsoft CSP Program), all licenses purchased had to be upkept manually and Microsoft was not liable for any license keys which were unretrievable or if the client lost the license keys. The most common form of keeping track of the license keys bought in bulk was either a conventional spreadsheet or a KMS server which housed the keys for mass activation and distribution.
The Microsoft 365 Admin portal houses the available perpetual licenses of the Microsoft product line which include Windows 10 Pro (Upgrade), Windows 10 Enterprise, Windows Server Standard, Windows Datacenter, SQL Server Standard, SQL Server Enterprise, Visio, Project, Visual Studio, Exchange Server, SharePoint Server, Windows Server Essentials, Windows User CALs, Windows Remote Desktop User CALs, and Windows SQL Server User CALs. Unlike Volume Licensing, there is never a need to purchase Software Assurance because any licenses purchased through CSP is always up-to-date.
The Microsoft CSP Program has changed the way licensing is utilized and managed. Being that Microsoft is the number one computer software supplier and manufacturer, this innovative solution is one of the most sought after solutions around the world.
