Visual Studio Team Foundation Server is a project management, build management, and version control application for software development teams. A user CAL authorizes a user to access Visual Studio Team Foundation Server from any device (for example, when an employee accesses the server from a computer at work and another at home).
This donation provides one user CAL. Device CALs are also available. A device CAL authorizes one computer to access Team Foundation Server, regardless of the number of users (for example, on a shared workstation).
This CAL Included with Visual Studio Products
The Microsoft Developer Network (MSDN) subscription that is bundled with Visual Studio editions available through TechSoup provides one Team Foundation Server CAL. Other users need a Team Foundation Server user or device CAL to access Team Foundation Server. Examples are users of Visual Studio Team Explorer (available as a free download from Microsoft), Visual Studio Team Explorer Everywhere, or Visual Studio Web Access.
This license does not require media, license keys, or setup codes.
CALs, ECLs, and management licenses (MLs) offered through TechSoup are always for the currently offered version of the server software. However, these licenses can also be used with earlier versions of the server software.
