Microsoft: How Volume Licensing Works

Simple stated, volume licensing of software makes it easier and more affordable to run software licenses through Microsoft Volume Licensing programs, you only pay for the software licenses. Box software, on the other hand, includes media (the CD-ROM or DVD), a user guide and other packaging items. Eliminating these physical costs and purchasing in volume often reduces cost and provides more customized purchasing options and improved software management

Depending on the Volume Licensing program you choose, you may receive media, and you have the option to acquire media (or supplement media), document, and product support separately needed.
