Microsoft announced Tuesday it is easing licensing restrictions for server applications. Companies will no longer be required to pay additional fees to move software within a server farm, the company said. The move is an attempt to remove barriers in order for its enterprise customers to develop more dynamic data centers and enterprise IT systems using virtualization software, according to the software maker. The revamped licensing is Microsoft's response to the growth of virtualization in enterprises, said Roger Kay, president of Endpoint Technologies Associates.
