This volume discount agreement is designed for small to medium-sized organizations with 5 to 250+ PCs. It is a non-perpetual, enterprise-wide licensing agreement. It is a rental agreement that lasts for three years, with annual payments. OVS replaces the OSL volume license program.

Agreement Terms:
Three annual payments are made based on the qualifying products purchased in the initial order. The single annual payments include payment for any additional desktops and products added to the license during the three year term. Every desktop within the organization is covered. At the end of the initial three year term there are three options:

- purchase perpetual licenses
- remove the software from the systems
- renew your agreement for another three years
