Microsoft Product Terms August 2021


We have confirmation of Windows 365 Enterprise base license requirements:

  • Windows 10 Enterprise
  • Intune
  • Azure AD P1

and the bundles that count too:

Microsoft 365 F3/E3/E5/A3/A5/Biz Prem/Student Use

Microsoft note that swapping a user’s Win365 license (by “resizing”) is not “license reassignment” and so can be done as frequently as required.

Also, you can’t use it for “digital asset transaction validation workloads” (aka Bitcoin mining I assume).

We also get confirmation that Windows 365 Business has no license pre-requisites (unlike Enterprise) although Windows 365 Business w/Windows Hybrid Benefit requires a Windows 10 Pro primary device (which is used periodically).

Azure Arc SQL has been added and Hybrid Benefit can be used…but prevents use on Listed Providers infrastructure.

There is a $0 license offer for Azure Virtual Desktop (until December 31, 2021) where you “serve Azure Virtual Desktop Customer Solutions to third parties on Azure”.
