  4. 4. LOB Apps Corp Apps Management Typical Windows workloads on AWS
  5. 5. Why does customers migrate to AWS? • Performance – I/O performance, Scalability, High Availability
  6. 6. Regions & Availability Zones AZ AZ AZ AZ AZ Transit Transit A Region • 2 or more Availability Zones (AZ) and Transit Centers • Redundant paths to Transit Centers • Transit Centers connect to: – Private links to other AWS Regions – Private links to customers – Internet through peering & paid transit Availability Zone • 1 or more datacenters
  7. 7. Why does customers migrate to AWS? • Performance – I/O performance, Scalability, High Availability • Flexibility – Breadth & Depth, Innovation, Quality & Maturity • Cost – Technical Debt, Cost options, Licensing options
  8. 8. Utilizing licenses on AWS
  9. 9. Before we begin • Gold Certified Microsoft Partner Network member • Licensed to sell Microsoft software under the Services Provider License Agreement (SPLA) • Authorized License Mobility participant Microsoft and AWS Relationship • Public cloud infrastructure is multitenant • Individual servers host multiple customers • Customers utilize Windows instances licensed by the Public Cloud Provider Microsoft Licensing in Public Cloud • For on-premises environments • Identifiable server hardware • Need access to an identifiable number of sockets and physical cores • License can be assigned to a physical server • Allow SQL to be brought to Public Cloud under License Mobility Microsoft Server Software Licenses
  10. 10. AWS Licensing Options AWS Licensing Buy License-included instances from AWS Bring Licenses to AWS Dedicated options for licenses not eligible for License Mobility Default tenancy for License Mobility eligible products with Software Assurance
  11. 11. Buy License-Included Instances From AWS Advantages:  Provides “pay-as-you-go” option with no upfront costs or long-term investments  Manages licensing compliance  Supports current and many legacy versions of Microsoft software  Eliminates the requirement of Windows Server Client Access Licenses (CALs) Customer Choices: • Amazon Machine Images (AMIs) with Microsoft Windows Server • Pre-installed Windows Server • Pre-installed Microsoft SQL Server

  13. 13. License Mobility
  14. 14. License Mobility through software assurance allows existing on premise licenses to be moved to shared tenant instances in the cloud. As such you:  Leverage the Software Assurance section of Volume License Agreement  Must maintain active Software Assurance  Complete license verification process within 10 days of deployment. License Mobility
  15. 15. License Mobility  Several Microsoft Products are Eligible  SQL Server  Productivity Applications: SharePoint, Exchange, Lync/Skype for Business, Dynamics  Windows Remote Desktop Services  Allowing use on shared tenant Amazon EC2  Per-Core licensing  Per-User licensing  Notes  Per-Core Licensing applies per vCPU (hyperthread) and not by physical core  SQL Server has a minimum of 4 Cores licensed per instance  OS Licenses not eligible(Windows Server / Desktop)  Desktop Applications not eligible (Office, Visual Studio)  SQL Server passive failover benefits within the public cloud are enabled
  16. 16. Bringing licenses to AWS
  17. 17. Bringing Licenses to AWS BYOL is the process of bringing volume licenses to dedicated hosts or dedicated instances. Advantages: • Take advantage of the efficiencies of the AWS Cloud while utilizing existing investments in on-premise software • Extend the lifecycle of prior software versions • Import your existing Windows images to the AWS Cloud
  18. 18. BYOL: Dedicated Hosts Bring on-premise licenses that do not have SA or that do not qualify for License Mobility Take advantage of AWS Linux compute pricing Manage expenses by utilizing existing on-premise software Maintain control and visibility into physical core and processor count Customer defines which host it will be running on for its placement and declares an affinity between the instance and the host
  19. 19. Comparing Dedicated Hosts to Standard EC2 Instances  Single-tenant servers host instances for only your workloads (1 AWS Account)  You can determine which host instances run on  You pay per host  You can continually reuse the same physical server through targeted placement, or let EC2 place your instances automatically  Visibility into physical cores and sockets Standard Amazon EC2 Instances Amazon EC2 Dedicated Hosts EC2 Instance Customer 1 Customer 3 Customer 5 Customer 2 Customer 4 Customer 6 Customer X  Multi-tenant servers host instances for multiple customers’ workloads  AWS determines which host instances run on  You pay per instance
  20. 20. Dedicated Host: Licensing Models Dedicated hosts allow for:  Windows Server BYOL  MSDN  Maximum virtualization using Windows Datacenter and SQL Enterprise • User and server based licensing deployment
  21. 21. Dedicated Hosts: Licensing Models Microsoft Product Terms allow for dedicated outsourcing Outsourcing Software Management Customer may install and use licensed copies of the software on Servers and other devices that are under the day-to-day management and control of third parties, provided all such Servers and other devices are and remain fully dedicated to Customer’s use. Customer is responsible for all of the obligations under its volume licensing agreement regardless of the physical location of the hardware upon which the software is used. Customer must bring Windows Server. License Included is NOT available Customer must host (or connect to) a Windows Key Management Server

  24. 24. BYOL: Dedicated Instances Bring on-premise licenses that do not have SA or that do not qualify for License Mobility Utilize Windows Server instances that are physically isolated at the host hardware level Manage expenses by utilizing existing on-premise software
  25. 25. Comparing Dedicated Instances to Standard EC2 Instances  Multi-tenant servers host instances for multiple customers’ workloads  AWS determines which host instances run on  You pay per instance  Single-tenant servers host instances for only your workloads (1 AWS Account)  AWS determines which host instances run on  You pay per instance  You have a regional fee Standard Amazon EC2 Instances Amazon EC2 Dedicated Instances EC2 Instance Customer 1 Customer 3 Customer 5 Customer 2 Customer 4 Customer 6 Customer X © 2017, Amazon Web Services, Inc. or its Affiliates.

  26. 26. Dedicated Instances: Licensing Models Dedicated Instances allow for:  MSDN deployment  User based BYOL options including Windows Desktop OS and Microsoft Office  BYOL SQL Server Virtual OSEs  BYOL Windows Server Licenses NOT eligible
  27. 27. Licensing for Common Microsoft Solutions Exchange Server is eligible for License Mobility under the Software Assurance program. A license must be assigned for each instance of the server software that is being run. There are two main licensing models that apply to SQL Server: • Server+Client Access License (CAL) • Per Core licensing SharePoint Server is eligible for License Mobility under the Software Assurance program.
  28. 28. Mixed Licensing Model is a Win-Win situation  Use BYOL for core (slowly varying) infrastructure  Large potential savings by reusing licenses and  Use License Included for varying infrastructure  Take advantage of AWS Auto Scaling  Less management overhead, pay-as-you-go
  29. 29. Summary License Included •On demand, Spot, or Reserved Instance •Pay-as-you-go pricing •Multi-tenant or Dedicated Instance •AWS provides images •Legacy versions supported •Amazon manages the licensing and compliance License Mobility •Requires active Software Assurance •Includes SQL Server, Remote Desktop Services, Exchange, SharePoint •Does not include Windows Server, Windows Desktop and Microsoft Office •Requires a verification process with Microsoft •Customers import and use their own software BYOL •Includes Dedicated Host and Dedicated Instances •Software Assurance/license mobility not required •Windows Server can be deployed on a Dedicated Host •MSDN eligible for Dedicated Host or Dedicated Instance •Customer is responsible for compliance with Microsoft •Customers import and use own their software
