Microsoft have announced a new way for Azure Stack HCI customers to license their Windows Server guest VMs. The snappily titled “Windows Server subscription for Azure Stack HCI” (WSSASHCI) allows organisations to purchase Windows Server licenses via their Azure subscription.

Currently the versions available are:

  • Windows Server 2022 Datacenter: Azure Edition
  • Windows Server 2022 Datacenter
  • Windows Server 2019
  • Windows Server 2016
  • Windows Server 2012 R2

Pricing

WSSASHCI is currently free in public preview but once it hits General Availability (GA) it will be $23.6 per physical core (in your Azure Stack HCI cluster) per month.
