Do they really need Server for that, or would a workstation do? I use a 
workstation as a license server for one app, and another workstation for 
the management console for the burglar alarm and antivirus. I've got my 
Unifi WAP "controller" on one workstation out of expedience, even though in 
principle I could run it as a Java-based service on Linux. Sadly, none of 
the others provide a Linux alternative, even though the upstream license 
software has Linux support, or I'd put them on my CentOS box.
