Microsoft SQL Server 2016 License

We are a MSFT partner and would like to purchase a few Microsoft SQL Server 2016 Licenses for our in-house development and testing efforts. 

 

Our partner benefit only provides us Microsoft SQL Server 2019 License. Is there anyway, i can purchase the Microsoft SQL Server 2016 License with a discount? 

Thanks

Amit

@asinha :

Additionally to what Andra mentioned, if you need it for dev/testing purposes Partner with Silver or Gold Competency get a number of Visual Studio Enterprise subscriptions, which provide access to all current and previous versions of software.

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/visualstudio/subscriptions/program-mpn

VS can also be obtained directly on the website or via Volume licensing:

For CSP and volume licensing you can contact a local Partner or license distributor in your area, e.g. https://partner.microsoft.com/en-us/Licensing/distributors

Hello @asinha ,

 

Thanks for your message!

In general you can buy additional licenses using various optios:

  1. from a Cloud Solution Provider
  2. via volume licensing
  3. directly from Microsoft

Hope this helps,

Andra
