Our on-premise solution installation was complex, Crayon automated the entire installation and now we are able to reduce customer onboarding time from several days to few hours with AWS.

What Microsoft licenses can I take to AWS?


Knowing what Microsoft licenses that you can take to AWS is dependent on whether you purchased your license before or after October 2019. Perpetual licenses with SA that are eligible for License Mobility can be deployed on shared or dedicated infrastructure regardless of when the licenses were purchased or what type of agreement they were purchased under. 

In other scenarios, including Windows Server and without-software-assurance, licenses must be deployed on dedicated infrastructure and in some cases in shared tenancy not at all. 

Contact a Crayon AWS specialist to for advise on how to best navigate your license migration path.
