Microsoft has announced that they are increasing their SQL Server Licenses by 10% from 1st January 2023. This follows the launch of the SQL Server 2022 and will have repercussions for SQL on-premise SKUs including Software Assurance.
Will you be affected?
SQL server subscriptions purchased via CSP will be affected, as will all channels and volume licence programmes. However, there will be no change to the metered cost of running Azure SQL Database.
For older servers, there is little price difference as most of those servers are running less than 4 cores per processor. – MetrixData360 article
