AWS License Manager now allows administrators to automate discovery of ‘bring your own license’ (BYOL) usage across their AWS and on-premises environments. With few simple clicks, administrators can now specify product information along with licensing rules for BYOL software. This enables License Manager to automatically track the instances that have the specified software installed and notify the administrator of any licensing rule violations. Administrators thus stay informed of all software installations across their environments, and can prevent usage that is not compliant with your defined licensing rules. 

AWS License Manager makes it easier to manage your existing software licenses from vendors such as Microsoft, SAP, Oracle, and IBM across AWS and your on-premises environments. Visit the product documentation, and AWS License Manager FAQ page to learn more. See the AWS Region Table for the list of regions where License Manager is currently available.
