In my company we had a bizspark softwares from microsoft, and as we understood that this will help us to lower our webhosting payments, and also some development software costs.
Now my issue that we have already a dedicated server, we pay for it monthly, this server contain windows server 2008 and SQL server 2005, and pay a lot monthly for both of them.
My question is, using softwares and os i got from bizspark can i replace these on the server with bizspark ones? should i ask the hosting company and they will replace? or should i buy a new empty dedicated web hosting and then give the hosting company my bizspark softwares to install there which will decrease my payments too much?
Please advice i am really confused how to gain the most from this bizspark because it seams that microsoft is trying to help too much but we can't gain :).
