Use License from the System

Allows you to use the license provided by the public cloud platform. After creating a desktop with a license authorized, you can use the authorized OS and pay on demand.


What Is BYOL?

Bring your own license (BYOL) allows you to use your existing OS license. In such a case, you do not need to apply for a license again. In BYOL license type, you do not pay for the license fee when creating a desktop.

How to Use BYOL?

If you select the BYOL license type, you are required to manage licenses by yourself. The public cloud platform provides functions for you to maintain license compliance during the license life cycle, for example, deploying desktops on Dedicated Hosts (DeHs) (For details, see Dedicated Host). If you have bought an OS license, you do not need to apply for a license any more.

Desktops that use BYOL can be deployed on DeHs only and support the following OSs:
  • Windows Server 2008 R2
  • Windows Server 2016
  • Windows 7
  • Windows 10
