With AWS Launch Wizard, you can now easily deploy SQL Server Always On availability groups on Ubuntu Server, making it easier for you to run SQL Server workloads on free Linux-based operating systems, without the need to buy Windows Server licenses.

AWS Launch Wizard offers a guided way of sizing, configuring, and deploying AWS resources for third party applications, such as Microsoft SQL Server Always On and HANA-based SAP systems, without the need to manually identify and provision individual AWS resources. Previously, customers could use AWS Launch Wizard to easily perform SQL Server Always On deployments on Windows Server. Now, you are able to leverage the same ease of use to perform SQL Server Always On deployments on Linux and save Windows Server licensing costs.  

AWS Launch Wizard for SQL Server is available at no additional charge. You only pay for the AWS resources that are provisioned for running your SQL Server application. To learn more about using AWS Launch Wizard to accelerate your SQL Server Always On deployments, visit the AWS Launch Wizard page and overview documentation.
