  • Hi sharan,

    Thanks for posting!

    Base on my understanding, Azure charged by the number of azure virtual core, RAM size and OS and so on. And Windows prices below include Windows Server licensing cost. If you have License Mobility with this Software Assurance benefit, there is no need to purchase new licenses and no associated mobility fees so, you can easily deploy existing licenses on the Azure cloud platform. I recommend you could refer to the azure VM pricing page and License Mobility pricing page.

    Also, you could try the azure support channel via http://www.windowsazure.com/en-us/support/contact/
