When you’re considering moving your workloads to the cloud, there are always concerns about cost. However, one of the ways your organisation can save money running workloads in the cloud is by using your on-premises Windows Server or SQL Server licenses in Azure.
How is this possible? With Azure Hybrid Benefit, you only pay for the additional needed infrastructure.
Keep both on-premises licenses and Azure licenses for running a hybrid infrastructure. You will also receive an extended security update subscription for your legacy Windows Server and SQL Server versions.
Typical savings of using Windows and SQL Server licenses with active Software Assurance on Azure are up to 85% when compared to pay-as-you-go pricing.
Further savings of up to 50% are also possible on Windows Server virtual machines in Azure with active Software Assurance on Windows Server.
The result is that you’re only paying for the infrastructure costs of the virtual machine.
