Discounted Rates

This offer provides access to a 13% discount off the current rates for the first year of a new Acrobat Pro DC plan membership. After you request this offer and pay TechSoup's administrative fee, you'll also pay Adobe directly for the discounted membership. With this discount, you will pay Adobe the discounted amount per month for the first year. This membership comes with a one-year contract obligation.

All following years are offered at the regular retail rate.

Licensing

The discounted membership allows one user to download and use the Acrobat Pro DC product and service while the membership is active. This offer is only valid if the user is an employee or volunteer within an organization.

If you're the licensed user, you may also install and use the software on a secondary computer. The secondary computer may be a home computer or portable computer and can run either Windows or Mac OS. You may not run the software simultaneously on both the primary and secondary computers.

Continuing Service After One Year

After the initial one-year period ends, Adobe will automatically renew the membership at the standard retail rate unless you choose to cancel.

Transferring Memberships

Individual memberships are managed on an individual level, and the user's email address is connected to the Adobe ID. With individual memberships, your organization can't change the member's Adobe ID or password, so you should make proper billing arrangements when an employee or volunteer leaves. For more information about this product, see the Adobe for Nonprofits through Charity Digital Exchange Program and Technical FAQ.

Description

Veritas System Recovery 18 is a backup and recovery solution that uses disk imaging technology to protect servers. It takes snapshots of entire hard disks that can be saved to almost any type of storage media or converted to virtual disks. When recovery is needed, these snapshots (called recovery points) can be restored to either the same hardware configuration or a different hardware setup.

This donation provides one license, which allows an organisation to back up any number of devices. Only one license is required per organisation.

Benefits for Organisations

Regular backups can protect your organisation against a data-loss catastrophe. If you have experience with system administration, you can restore an entire system or individual files and folders if a disaster renders servers inoperable.

Major Capabilities

  • Flexible recovery point creation: You can create recovery points as needed or schedule them to be created automatically.
  • Restoration of individual files: If only certain files need to be recovered, you can browse the recovery point to restore individual files, Exchange messages, and SharePoint documents.
  • Secondary backup locations: System Recovery supports secondary backup locations, which are often essential when primary on-site backups are inaccessible or unrecoverable.
  • Cloud storage options: System Recovery supports backup and recovery directly to third-party cloud storage, including Amazon S3 and Microsoft Azure (64-bit operating systems only).

Free Management Console

The System Recovery Management Solution is free for any organisation with a valid System Recovery license. It provides a centralised management console for organisations administering System Recovery on multiple computers distributed across one or more locations. Veritas recommends it for managing 20 or more servers. It must be installed on a computer running Windows Server.

This product is one of two Veritas enterprise-level backup applications. For a comparison of the applications offered through Charity Digital Exchange, see the Guide to Veritas Recovery and Backup Products.

Description

 

Windows Server Standard is a server operating system that enables a computer to handle network roles such as print server, domain controller, web server, and file server.

The Standard edition is designed for small-to-medium-sized organizations with physical or lightly virtualized server environments.

This offer provides two core licenses for Windows Server Standard. Windows Server requires a minimum of 8 core licenses for each physical processor and a minimum of 16 core licenses for each server. The Standard edition allows up to two virtual instances of the server software when all cores on the server are licensed. For additional licensing information, see the Guide to Windows Server Editions and Licensing.

Windows Server Datacenter Edition Discounted (Includes Software Assurance)

Windows_server.png
£424.00
Description


Description

 

Windows Server Datacenter is a server operating system that enables a computer to handle network roles such as print server, domain controller, web server, and file server. As a server operating system, it is also the platform for separately acquired server applications such as Exchange Server or SQL Server. The Datacenter edition is designed for organizations with large workloads and heavily virtualized server environments.

This offer provides two core licenses for Windows Server Datacenter. Windows Server requires a minimum of 8 core licenses for each physical processor and a minimum of 16 core licenses for each server. The Datacenter edition allows an unlimited number of virtual instances of the server software when all cores on the server are licensed. For additional licensing information, see the Guide to Windows Server Editions and Licensing.

Which Versions of This Software Are Available?

You can choose to download the current version or the previous version of this software. You can find out which version is the current one on the Current Versions of Microsoft Products page. In addition, you can download the software in any language that's available.

Benefits for Organizations

If you have system administration experience, you can use Windows Server to

  • Run multiple server roles and different operating systems on a single server
  • Reduce the amount of hardware needed to run server workloads
  • Minimize the time it takes to set up hardware and software and reproduce test environments

Major Capabilities

  • Server virtualization: Windows Server provides tools for creating and managing a virtualized server computing environment. You can replicate a virtual machine from one location to another, without shared storage, storage arrays, or other replication technologies. The Datacenter edition allows you to create encrypted virtual machines.
  • Server management: Server Core and Nano Server provide minimal environments for running specific server roles. Those roles are then easier to maintain and manage and less exposed to attack. Administrators can manage groups of servers collectively from within a single, integrated console.
  • Integrated services: Windows Server delivers a unified platform for web publishing that integrates IIS, ASP.NET, and Windows Communication Foundation and also supports SharePoint Services.
  • Failover clustering: Administrators can minimize disruptions of services and applications by creating a redundant server environment with dynamic hardware partitioning.
  • DirectAccess: This secure tunneling feature allows access to the network from any computer or device. It is faster than typical VPN connections and provides off-site access to file shares, on-premises equipment, and other resources.

  • Enhance network performance and minimize bandwidth usage

Upgrade License Only

Only certain editions of the Windows operating system qualify for upgrade licenses under Charity Digital Exchange's Volume Licensing agreements with Microsoft. See the system requirements to make sure your device qualifies.
