BYOL for Windows Server on the Cloud

Copper Contributor

Hey all


I'd like to manage my own Windows license with a cloud provider, but don't want to pay a premium for a dedicated host. Is there a way or a cloud provider that allows me to bring my own license on any of the shared compute offerings?

@Dave Patrick Thanks for the quick response. I wanted to evaluate alternatives outside of Azure as well. I've seen BYOL on AWS and GCP require dedicated host/single tenant, is that going to be the case with all cloud providers?

Better to ask the service provider directly or in their forums.





In Azure, you have also Azure Hybrid Benefit bringing the possibility to use your on-premise SA licences :
