Understanding HPE Reseller Option Kit (ROK) Licensing for Windows Server


Hewlett Packard Enterprise offers Microsoft
Windows Server OEM licenses in a variety of ways that make it easy for you to access the infrastructure that matches your needs
and budget. To ensure customers purchase the right HPE ProLiant server with the right Microsoft Windows Server editions, HPE offers the OEM Microsoft Reseller
Option Kit, or ROK, that delivers value pricing, flexible choices, one stop ordering, and single source support, through our reseller partners. Now, you can be more productive and expand the value of your existing investments, while your business keeps running smoothly. Hewlett Packard Enterprise resellers can preinstall the Windows Server operating system you choose to deliver a solution that is entirely customized to your needs and immediately ready to use. But the benefits of ROK aren’t just for customers! Resellers can flexibly stock, sell, and install
Windows Server operating systems like they would any other HPE server option,
on any HPE supported server that is certified for the Windows Server
generation in question. This convenience means resellers
can offer server and server OS with no additional licensing forms or
downloads required, all with guided installation with HPE iLO’s intelligent provisioning technology for ease of deployment. While resellers get flexibility and convenience, customers get lower acquisition cost by purchasing the server and operating system together, and lower support costs with one call to HPE technical support for server and server operating system installation, configuration, and setup
free for 90 days after purchase. Customers also get the confidence only
rigorously tested HPE ProLiant servers can provide. With an OEM certified Windows Server OS sold by HPE, get the power and reliability your
business needs, taking advantage of software that is optimized to run smoothly and efficiently on HPE server infrastructure.
