Server Automation has a lower cost “appliance” version for small installations, (Now referred to as SA Premium or SAVA) and for larger installations, a legacy version, (referred to as “SA Ultimate”).
When the appliance version of Server Automation (a.k.a. SA Premium or SAVA) is purchased, the resulting customer support agreement will show T8938AAE HP SA Premium Ed OS Instance SW E-LTU for entitlement.
T8938AAE provides entitlement for The Server Automation Premium Appliance whose current released version is 10.00. If the customer purchases Server Automation Ultimate, (Full Legacy HP SA) they will entitled by a different product SKU. Product videos, use cases, and datasheets can be found here.
