Hello

Yes the windows servers with shared tenancy are included licenses by default by AWS, Information on Microsoft Licensing on AWS https://aws.amazon.com/windows/resources/licensing/

AWS FAQ:

Is Windows Server eligible for BYOL on EC2?

There are three requirements for Windows Server to be eligible for BYOL on EC2:

  1. The licenses must be deployed on EC2 Dedicated Hosts.
  2. The licenses must have been purchased before 10/1/2019 (or added as a true-up under an agreement that was effective prior to 10/1/2019).
  3. The version was publicly available prior to 10/1/2019.

Software Assurance is not a requirement for Windows Server BYOL.
