I know Windows Server is not covered under license mobility. Can a customer bring their own image that has applications and middleware on top of Windows Server?

Even though Windows Server is not covered under license mobility, volume licensing customers can still upload their own image containing Windows Server to Azure, if they are bringing it as part of Licensing Mobility for another product that is being brought over. We will charge the Windows Server Virtual Machine rate applicable for their instance. Customers can get access to a cheaper per-minute-cost by utilizing the Azure Hybrid Benefit. Customers are responsible for proper licensing of any application or middleware in the image.
