Windows Server Standard Edition


A customer is asking if AWS only provide Datacenter editions of Windows Server or if we also offer Standard editions. Checking on the AMI's I could not see any Standard edition as well.

Has anyone have insights on this?

Part1: It might depend on the version you're looking for but here comes a full list of supported AMIs

For instance the answer is "yes" for Windows Server 2012 R2

"We will be releasing AMIs with Windows Server 2012 R2 Standard Edition. For details on the differences between the Windows Server Editions, please refer to the Microsoft documentation."

And you'll see a variety of offerings for Win 2019.

Part 2 :

It looks you're right for AWS provided AMIs , but there seems to be an option if you enhance your search to marketplace :

"Microsoft Windows Server 2016 with SQL Server 2019 Standard"

Frankly speaking i'm not quire sure about its difference than AWS provided "Microsoft Windows Server 2019 Base" . It might make sense to check with MS Team

But it seems to be the license you're looking for as per MS Docs :
