If you’re an Independent Software Vendor and you want to provide your own software as a hosted service then one option for doing this is to use the “Self-Hosted Applications” use right available for many products under a Volume Licensing agreement.
There’s a change to this right – previously any solution had to be on dedicated hardware, now page 6 of the February 2016 Product Terms confirms that shared servers are a new delivery option.
