There are three ways to this can be done:
- The customer can BYO their existing Windows Server license if they purchased Software Assurance (SA) and are eligible for Azure Hybrid benefit (AHUB) use.
- Procure the Windows Server O.S. license through Server Subscription program by committing for a 1 or 3-year period.
Please check the Rhipe FAQ – Windows Server Subscription for more information.
- Pay on-demand hourly metered rates, which will occur automatically if neither of the above options are used. This option is flexible but not as economical as software subscriptions.
