What is the price (in US Dollars) of SharePoint 2010 Enterprise Edition, with the 5 user cals?

I can't seem to find this pricing anywhere. Whenever I ask one of the "local" resellers, the response is always that "we need to come in and have a discussion"; it's like a well kept secret.

This question is unlikely to help any future visitors; it is only relevant to a small geographic area, a specific moment in time, or an extraordinarily narrow situation that is not generally applicable to the worldwide audience of the internet.

Of course it's a well-kept secret, they throw in lots of consultancy too ;) – James Love Jun 14 '11 at 15:19
QUESTION: And the AD CALs, doesn't have nothing to do about this? or is something completely different? – fallout Jul 27 '11 at 14:42
@fallout, Active Directory CALs? I haven't heard of it. Just Operating System CALS. This is about pricing for SharePoint including the operating system – user2903 Jul 27 '11 at 17:53
Licensing prices and rules regularly change, and what applies to one country is different to another. Hence the closure of this question. – Alex Angas Jul 27 '11 at 23:29

It's just a complicated question, because it can be licensed a variety of ways.

Just SharePoint Enterprise (not SQL, OS, etc) - these are high end retail, you'll get if for less under Open Value or another volume program.

Server license $5000 Standard CAL $92 Enterprise CAL $75

1 Server 5 Cal - $5835

These sites have more details.

I would recommend you look at a hosted deployment, it will probably be more cost effective for you with that few of users.

Yea cuz after the os cal + sql server cal + sharepoint cal, you're looking at alot of mula for a small company. How come standard is more expensive than enterprise? – user2903 Jun 14 '11 at 16:39
They are cumulative licenses. Standard CAL = Standard Server, Standard + Enterprise CAL = Enterprise Server. – Jesus Shelby Jun 14 '11 at 17:30
Oh, so you need a standard cal for the enterprise cal. So the enterprise cal is actually: $167 – user2903 Jun 14 '11 at 17:37
That is correct. – Jesus Shelby Jun 14 '11 at 17:59

While this is not exact, but will give you an idea. If you can unravel the exact pricing concept (cal, internet, intranet etc. licenses), pls do us a favor by sharing that :-)
