We have an application (GoldMine 2014) that came with SQL 2008 Workgroup. We need to move this server to AWS EC2 instance. My understanding is that in general with standalone SQL license you can only to do it if you have Software Assurance. We of course don't have it as it came with the software. Have you guys seen situation where it was eligible to use embedded SQL DB in the cloud? Please don't ask me to call MS and ask them, as asking 3 diff MS reps may give me3 diff answers. I'm just asking what have you seen in real world scenarios
