    You can purchase Open Value subscriptions for Windows Server and SQL Server with Software Assurance directly from Microsoft or from a Microsoft reseller partner.

    To purchase directly from Microsoft, you can visit the Microsoft Store for Business or contact the Microsoft Sales team. To find a Microsoft reseller partner, you can use the Microsoft Partner Center.

    When purchasing an Open Value subscription, you will need to select the appropriate SKU for your needs. The SKU will depend on factors such as the number of devices you want to license, the level of software assurance coverage you require, and the specific edition of the software you need.

    It's important to note that the process of purchasing licenses can be complex and may require consultation with a licensing specialist to ensure you get the right licenses for your business needs.

    To purchase an Open Value subscription and enable the AHB (Azure Hybrid Benefit) for software assurance, you can follow these steps:

    1. Find a Microsoft Partner: You can find a Microsoft Partner who can help you purchase and manage your licenses. The Microsoft Partner Network directory is a good place to start your search.
    2. Choose the right subscription: Work with your Microsoft Partner to choose the right Open Value subscription that meets your needs and includes the software assurance benefits you want.
    3. Enable AHB: Once you have purchased the Open Value subscription, you can enable AHB for eligible licenses by following the instructions provided by Microsoft. This will typically involve registering your on-premises licenses with Azure and then assigning them to your Azure subscription.
    4. Use your software: Once your licenses and subscriptions are set up, you can begin using your software with the benefits of AHB, which may include cost savings, better license management, and enhanced security features.

    Note that the specific steps and requirements may vary depending on your organization's needs and licensing situation. It's important to work closely with your Microsoft Partner to ensure that you are getting the right licenses and benefits for your business.
