Shared Computer Activation (SCA)


Anexia is a Qualified Multitenant Hoster (QMTH) authorized by Microsoft to host your Windows virtual machines via Microsoft Cloud Agreement subscription or Enterprise Agreement/MPSA on dedicated or multitenant hardware. In addition, we are also authorized to host Office 365 ProPlus (including E3 and E5), Project Online Professional, and Visio Pro for Office 365 subscriptions using shared computer activation (SCA) technology. This makes it possible for multiple Office 365 ProPlus users to share the same hardware. The following three scenarios are possible:

Of course, the SCA can also be used by Cloud customers who use the Windows Azure platform.
