VMware: Windows 10 virtualization enabled through Cloud Solution Provider program

Microsoft is officially giving its users more options when it comes to Windows 10 virtualization. Benefiting both users who want more choice and Microsoft’s partners, they now have subscriptions to Windows 10 that include virtualization rights.

Since Sept. 6, users have a larger variety of virtualization options when buying Windows 10 Enterprise. Of course, they still have the possibility of buying Windows 10 Enterprise E3 without virtualization rights as well if they aren’t necessary.

Now, not every Microsoft Cloud Solution Provider (CSP) is able to offer Windows 10 virtualization, but only a Qualified Multitenant Hoster (QMTH). This program “authorizes qualified third-party hosting service providers to host customers’ Windows virtual machines via Microsoft Cloud Agreement subscription or Enterprise Agreement/MPSA on dedicated or multitenant hardware.”

This program also allows these third-party hosting service providers the ability to host Office 365 ProPlus (including E3 and E5), Project Online Professional, and Visio Pro for Office 365 in shared computer activation (SCA) mode.

Microsoft is hoping that these new features with Windows 10 Enterprise add more subscribers to their plans. As of right now, “only about 0.5 percent of small/mid-size business (SMB) users who are running Windows are running the Enterprise version.”

Of course, one of the reasons they aren’t upgrading from the Pro and Home Premium plans is the cost, but another is the struggle to understand everything about licensing and purchasing.

Trying to simplify the issues and offer more options, Microsoft discussed their new Windows 10 Enterprise subscription options that have been introduced through the CSP partners for Windows 10 Enterprise E3 and Windows 10 Enterprise E5.
