Windows Licensing Options in AWS RRS feed

  • Question

  • Folks,

    I have been looking for Microsoft Licensing offering options in AWS guide primarily to address BYOL scenarios for Windows application workloads in EC2. Is there any considerably newer documentation released by Microsoft on this topic? I searched but couldn’t find anything as such. There are few official links by Microsoft about SA or EA supporting BYOL to AWS however these scattered information looks unconnected and broken.

    Appreciate your inputs!

  • Have you looked at some of Microsoft's published documentation, such as https://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/pricing/licensing-faq/ ?

    You can also contact Microsoft directly and ask licensing questions.  As this is a technical forum and is not designed to answer legal questions, any responses you receive here are simply opinions from anonymous posters and, as such, would not be accepted by your lawyers and auditors.  Contacting a trained Microsoft licensing specialist, either directory from Microsoft or from your authorized Microsoft reseller, is the way to go.

  • Thanks for your response, Tim. 

    I understand this forum is no good for licensing discussions, however since I had no better choice, I thought to float this query here as well! 

    I have written to a couple of Microsoft sales and licensing contacts. However, I haven't gotten a proper response to this in the last one week yet. Still waiting thou.
