October 2022 will see some Microsoft price changes and new options added to the Server Subscriptions for Azure on the CSP program:
- Windows Server 2022 Std 8-core license pack (1yr) drops from $272 to $213.60
- Windows Server 2022 RDS User CAL (1yr) increases from $56.04 to $77.04
They are also adding Windows Server Datacenter 8-core license packs in 1 & 3 year variants, to complement the existing Windows Server Std offering.
Microsoft also state that, “over time”, the 1-year software subscriptions via CSP will be aligned with pricing on SPLA – meaning some products will increase while others decrease.
