when going through the 'online' purchase, they only seem to have one entrprise option for a bulk license, which is the 'enterprise for virtual datacenters'.

my understanding is that once we have that, we can then do as you do, with the

Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of
arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather
to skid in broadside in a cloud of smoke, thoroughly used up,
totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming "Wow! What a Ride!"
