Apple to Extend Maintenance Program to Small SchoolsAccording to an AUSTRALIAN IT article, Apple is in the process of deploying a "scheme which enables small schools to group together to take advantage of software licensing and maintenance program discounts."
The new promotion, which the company is calling the 'K-12 State & District Licence Program', is aimed at schools that are unable to take advantage of the Apple Maintenance Program (AMP) discounts offered to larger customers - usually requiring at least 1000 seats.
Apple may also be on the brink of landing some heavy server deals in the Australian region. "The company was having some "interesting" conversations with large companies due to its Xserve server and Xserve RAID storage device," the article states.
The K-12 State & District License promotion will run from November through next Easter.
