Microsoft Windows Server 2022 User CAL
Every user who wants to access the server services of Microsoft Windows Server 2022 in the Standard or Datacenter Edition with any Windows-enabled device requires a separate client access license for users (User CAL), which is not included in the server license. Only this license provides a single user with the appropriate access rights for the server. It does not matter whether the authorized User CAL uses a desktop PC, notebook, smartphone or tablet with Windows operating system. Thus, the buyer of a User CAL is free to decide with which Windows-enabled end device he wants to access the Windows Server 2022.
You can already find used User CALs for the new Windows Server 2022 at Wiresoft! Benefit from a lower price than with the client access licenses for users offered as new in the software trade, as well as from the advantage to determine the exact number of User CALs you need to access your Windows Server software yourself!
Use Windows Server 2022 without restrictions with a used User CAL
The new Microsoft software Windows Server 2022 is based on the operating system Windows 10 - already in the standard edition it has many new functions, which offer even more security especially for complex networks, as well as additional options concerning the sharing of data, applications and services with others - and in the more extensive Datacenter edition you benefit from the extended functionality. With these Windows Server 2022 editions, users with a User CAL can also take advantage of the many options and performance enhancements in hybrid scenarios, particularly with regard to virtualization and also the use of Windows containers.
Higher network security with Windows Server 2022
The security factor is still the most important issue when creating and managing networks. In the new Windows Server version 2022, many new features are available to users with the User CAL to improve the protection of data and services. In addition to TLS 1.3 - the latest version of Transport Layer Security - these include code integrity according to VBS (virtualization-based security), the feature TPM 2.0 (Trusted Platform Module) and hypervisor-based security (HVCI). The encryption of RDMA networks via SMB (Server Message Block) can use the standards AES-128 as well as AES-256, and among other features also Virtual OSE (Operating System Environment).
The User CAL also enables the use of other features such as Hyper-V, SDN (Software-Defined Networking), SSD (Storage Spaces Direct) as well as SVM (Shielded Virtual Machines ) and Storage Replica to create highly secure virtualization infrastructures available to users depending on the Server 2022 edition.
Container Platform Management in Windows Server 2022
Licensed users will also have enhanced application compatibility features when using Windows Containers in Windows Server 2022, as well as improvements to the Windows Container user interface with Kubernetes, which also means broader support and greater performance improvements. Container creation has also been optimized for .NET applications.
New storage and migration services for Windows Server 2022
Windows Server 2022 also includes additional functions in the Storage Migration Services, as far as the possibility of migrating data and services is concerned: The User CAL, for example, offers various additions and improvements, depending on the edition, such as for migrating local users or groups, as well as storage, and also for migrating standalone servers - here especially also Linus servers - as well as failover clusters.
With a User Client Access license, you can also take advantage of the many other performance enhancements in Windows Server 2022, including the standard use of Microsoft Edge, as well as improvements to Transmission Control Protocol (TCP), Receive Segment Coalescing (RSC) and Recent ACKnowledgment (RACK), and support for Nested Virtualization with AMD processors.

How does licensing work with Used Software for User CALs for Windows Server 2022?
Basically, with Used Software from Wiresoft, it should be noted that with User CALs for Windows Server 2022, it contains the same range of access possibilities to it as a new product - always in relation to the functions available in the respective edition. Another advantage of buying used User CALs is the possibility to individually determine how many single client access licenses you want to buy. With used software from Wiresoft there are no restrictions due to the usual staggering of User CALs, as Microsoft prescribes. This way, especially self-employed persons and also smaller companies can save money when purchasing software, because at Wiresoft they can calculate their license requirements tailor-made.
How is Windows Server 2022 licensed with a User CAL?
Microsoft license management requires, among other things, the licensing of each individual user with a separate client access license for access to one of the Windows Server 2022 editions - Standard or Datacenter. As with the licensing of earlier server versions, the User CAL version must be at least equal to or higher than the identical Windows Server version in order to be allowed to access its functions on a Windows-enabled end device. This User CAL contains only the access rights for the client/server environment of Windows Server 2022 - and no software that has to be installed first.
The Microsoft licensing model offers two types of CALs for Windows Server 2022:
- User CAL for Windows Server 2022: this grants a dedicated user server access rights independent of an endpoint device
- Device CAL for Windows Server 2022: this grants server access rights to a dedicated end device (PC, laptop, tablet, mobile phone)
It is also possible to license User CALs and Device CALs in parallel.
What are the benefits of licensing with client access licenses for Windows Server 2022?
Compared to core-based licensing, CAL-based licensing of Windows Server 2022 and older versions primarily offers the possibility of more flexible and thus more needs-based rights management for all corresponding users. When purchasing used User Access Licenses from Wiresoft, the otherwise prescribed, rigid licensing scale no longer applies - so you buy from us exactly the number of User CALs you actually need - and no more - and you can also purchase additional individual User CAL s at any time.
Benefit from version compatibility with User CALs for Windows Server 2022!
The User CAL for Windows Server 2022 is currently the most current client access license offered by Microsoft. This means that it not only provides the user in question with access rights for the current Windows Server 2022, but also includes access rights to older server versions such as 2019 (downgrade). Thus, this User CAL offers a decisive advantage over older User CAL versions, which, depending on the version, are only valid for the Windows Server software in question as well as previous versions, but cannot be used for the current Windows Server version 2022 (upgrade).
What should I pay attention to when licensing Windows Server 2022 with a User CAL?
As mentioned above, a User CAL only grants access rights to Windows Server 2022 to a single user at a time, regardless of whether the User CAL is used software or new software.
As soon as the registration of the user with the User CAL is completed, the license cannot be transferred to another user. It is also generally excluded to change the CAL type, i.e. to use the User CAL as Device CAL. However, the parallel use of User CALs and Device CALs for access to Windows Server 2022 is possible.
These provisions of Microsoft License Management for Client Access Licenses also serve, among other things, to prevent unauthorized third-party access to a Windows Server 2022. User CALs therefore means more security for a company and its data, as users who are not correctly licensed cannot access the server.
What are the specific benefits of a User CAL for Windows Server 2022?
In terms of the functionality provided by Windows Server 2022 services, User CAL is no different from Device CAL. However, the personal Client Access License (User CAL) offers other advantages regarding the possibilities of accessing the Windows Server: Every user who is authorized with a User CAL for Windows Server 2022 can use any licensed Windows-capable end device, e.g. in a company, for server access. Especially if an employee frequently accesses the Windows Server at different workstations and locations and uses very different end devices, which are e.g. locally available, he is more flexible than with a device-related CAL. The User CAL therefore offers a great advantage if the licensed user does not always want to or cannot use one and the same end device.
