And this policy is completely unexpected, running on its own cloud.MicrosoftThe software will be much cheaper than on AWS or Google Cloud.
In this regard, Google Cloud President Robert Enslin wrote on Twitter: "Shelf-ware, complex pricing, is now locked in suppliers. Microsoft is bringing its most successful products of the 1990s to the cloud."
AWS Chief Technology Officer Werner Vogels also quickly commented: "Another bait + exchange set up by $MSFT (Microsoft), eliminating license benefits, forcing the choice to use Microsoft. First, Microsoft canceled BYOL SQL on RDSserver, now #AWS is gone againWindowsUpdate w/BYOL. It is hard to believe in a company that raises prices, eliminates benefits, and limits freedom of choice. ”
AWO's vice president andy Carter also disapproved of this decision. He published an article in LinkedIn on "Why is AWS the best place for your Windows work and how Microsoft changed its license agreement to awkwardly force you to use Azure" Article. In this article, Carter hints that Microsoft is abusing power -- "Microsoft wants you to believe that it's just 'cancel outsourcing', but Microsoft wants to limit the computers you can use, and the cloud."
In response, Microsoft's response is that the more service options and competition they offer are the reasons for the price increase.
