Windows Enterprise Sideloading

Windows Enterprise Sideloading is the process of installing Windows 8 apps directly to a device without going through the Windows Store.

Visual Studio Deployment 2013

Thanks to the Release Management functionality of Visual Studio 2013, it is possible to automate the deployment to target servers of applications developed with Visual Studio.

To allow this, target servers will need to be licensed separately with a Visual Studio Deployment 2013 management license.

Visual Studio Deployment is licensed per processor, with each license covering two processors, and it will be available in Standard and Datacenter editions to Volume Licensing customers from December 1st, 2013.

Each Visual Studio Deployment Standard 2013 license will cover two processors and management of up to two managed Operating System Environments (OSEs).

Each Visual Studio Deployment Datacenter 2013 license will cover two processors and management of an unlimited number of managed Operating System Environments (OSEs).

O365 Student Advantage Benefit

Microsoft will introduce a new benefit for School customers in December 2013. Any EES, OVS-ES or School customer that covers 100% of their organization's faculty and staff with either Office Professional Plus or Office 365 ProPlus can provide Office 365 ProPlus to their entire organization’s student body at no additional licensing costs.

The Student Advantage Benefit can be redeemed by placing an order for the $0 Office 365 ProPlus A for Students SKU.

If the organization-wide faculty/staff coverage includes only a specific school or department, then only the students enrolled in that school or department are eligible. Paid Office 365 ProPlus A continues for all other scenarios.
