AWS License Manager expands its new, simplified bring-your-own-license (BYOL) experience for software licenses, such as Windows and SQL Server, to Asia Pacific (Mumbai), US East (Ohio), Asia Pacific (Seoul), Europe (London), Asia Pacific (Singapore), Canada (Central), South America (São Paulo) and US West (N. California) regions, in addition to US East (N. Virginia), US West (Oregon), Europe (Ireland), Europe (Frankfurt), Asia Pacific (Tokyo) and Asia Pacific (Sydney) regions.

The new, simplified, BYOL experience allows you to can specify your Dedicated Host management preferences, such as host allocation, host capacity utilization, and instance placement in AWS License Manager. Once set up, AWS takes care of these administrative tasks on your behalf, so that you can seamlessly launch virtual machines (instances) on Dedicated Hosts just like you would launch an EC2 instance with AWS provided licenses.

AWS License Manager makes it easier to manage your existing software licenses from vendors such as Microsoft, SAP, Oracle, and IBM to AWS, and centrally manage these licenses across AWS and on-premises environments. See the AWS Region Table for the list of all regions where License Manager is currently available. AWS License Manager is offered at no additional charges.
