Amazon Web Services and Microsoft Licensing
Microsoft License Mobility
Eligible Microsoft Windows Server Applications can be deployed on AWS using existing application licenses. This allows customers to more easily move their workloads to the Amazon Web Services cloud, without any additional Microsoft software licensing fees. This benefit is available to Microsoft Volume Licensing (VL) customers with eligible server applications covered by active Microsoft Software Assurance (SA) contracts. Not only will license mobility make the transition easier for existing SA customers, it provides customers who prefer to purchase perpetual licenses the ability to continue doing so while still taking advantage of the efficiencies of the cloud.
