I would like to check, what SQL License is required in order to run Dynamics GP Program in Microsoft Azure for both Perpetual Licensing and Subscription Licensing? Example, I have 10 Full Users with 1 SQL Server. Can we use SQL Runtime license in an IaaS environment for both Perpetual Licensing and Subscription Licensing

Thank You

    I just wanted to mention, Dynamics GP is not supported on Azure SQL, regardless of version of Dynamics GP.

    SQL can be expensive, there are few options for perpetual licensing: Core, Server+Cal , Web etc. If you run in the Azure, then you just need to pay for Windows Server Standard, then install your perpetual license. Just depends on your needs.

    Also look at SQL Express for a no cost solution depending on your space needs, the limit is 10 GB.

    If you go the Azure SQL subscription, then you need to pay month starting at 700+ per month plus the cost of Terminal Server.

    You can also consider Microsoft Business Central which is a next generation cloud based ERP starting from $70 per month which is around 8K per year for 10 users.

    I would suggest talking to a partner to get some options.
