Microsoft release more information on the Azure Hybrid Use Benefit – here are the highlights from the FAQ:
- Windows Server with SA licences can be used to license Azure Virtual Machines at the base compute rate which is equal to the Linux rate for VMs
- Each Windows Server licence covers 2 VMs with up to 8 cores, or one VM with up to 16 cores
- To use the Azure HUB you need to create a Windows VM through PowerShell and set a special property which bills the VM at the base compute rate
- Gallery images can’t be used with Azure HUB.
