Just came across this page for Windows 8 Enterprise Edition

I am particularly keen on Direct access without VPN as well as Windows to go. Can I upgrade to Enterprise directly from Windows 7 Pro or do I need to upgrade to Windows 8 Pro first?

Upgrade to Windows Enterprise (Volume License)

You can upgrade to Windows 8 Enterprise (Volume License) from the following operating system editions:

  • Windows 7 Professional (Volume License)

  • Windows 7 Enterprise (Volume License)

  • Windows 8 (Volume License)

Source: TechNet - Windows 8 Upgrade Paths

So yes, upgrading is possible under volume license.

It's worth noting however that Windows 8 Enterprise is only available through volume licensing, not for individual purchase. If VL isn't an option for you, check out equivalent to Windows To Go for personal use – nhinkle Oct 23 '12 at 2:14
@nhinkle Technically Enterprise is not only available through VL - you can legally get Enterprise through MSDN/technet. Although those licenses are kind of fuzzy - I think the point is that you can only use it for your own personal use. – Nathan Adams Oct 23 '12 at 3:58
