Microsoft licensing in the Cloud – Part 2

Of course you guessed it after after first announcement a few days ago.

There it is : SamBox.io now manages Bring you own License into Microsoft Azure.

Ever heard of Hybrid Use Benefit ? Can I use my Windows Server licenses ? my SQL Server licenses ? In IaaS only, or in PaaS mode ? with or without Software Assurance ? ….

Many many questions when it comes to know whether we have the right to use our own licenses into Azure or not… and even when it seems we can, not that easy to determine how many licenses would be consumed, given the fact counting rules into Azure are different from on premise environment. Moreover, if you use Server and Cloud Enrollment contract, you may benefit from specific rules that would enable you to have concurrent use, on premise and in Azure. Either for a migration period, or for a longer time depending on your edition !

Again, our Microsoft consultants have worked hard to specify all these new rules, and Everyting is now in the Box !

Ever heard of Bring your own license ?

We are happy to announce that SamBox.io has been updated to manage Bring you own License into AWS.

Can I use my Windows Server licenses ? my SQL Server licenses ? with or without Software Assurance ? Is there some metric restrictions ? What if I purchased my VM prior or after the 1st of October 2019 ? What if I purchased my Licenses prior or after the 1st of October 2019 ? Can I use my licenses both on prem and within AWS at the same time ? Is it still possible even if AWS is one of the 4 cloud providers listed by Microsoft ? How should I count my ByoL if I purchased dedicated instances EC2 ? And if it is dedicated hosts ? And if it is shared instances….

Everyting is in the Box.
