CAL stands for client access license, a license that is required for someone to access a Microsoft SQL Server. CALs come in two different forms: device and user. Either CAL makes it possible to access all the features of the server, but the two CAL types serve different needs.
What Is the Difference Between a Device and User CAL?
A Device CAL allows one licensed device to access the server for any user on that device. It is the preferred option of businesses that expect a set number of devices to be shared in order to regularly access the server.
A User CAL allows one licensed user to access the server from any device. It is preferable to a Device CAL is a user intends to use multiple devices (for instance, a desktop at work and a phone or tablet at home) to regularly access the server.
What Is an Open License?
An Open License is a volume license agreement between Microsoft and a corporation, charity, academic institution, or government institution. It gives you the flexibility to get the licenses you need for your enterprise, while also providing features like Software Assurance (which guarantees free upgrades among other features).
