Q: Do I have license mobility if I move environments to public cloud services, such as Azure, Amazon Web Services, and Google?
A: The exact license mobility for licenses such as SQL Server depends on whether a vendor has an agreement with Microsoft. All three of the major public cloud services have an agreement with Microsoft. For details, see the following articles/websites:
- Azure: "License Mobility through Software Assurance on Azure"
- Amazon Web Services: "Amazon Web Services: Microsoft License Mobility"
- Google Cloud Platform: "Google Compute Engine: Windows Operating Systems | Microsoft license mobility"
