You can find all information around Microsoft License Mobility on Microsoft.com.
Here are some fundamentals:
A1 is certified as a qualified partner for Microsoft license mobility.
License mobility does not capture any Windows server operating system. This means that the Windows Server license must always be provided by the hosting provider. Exception: dedicated server resources.
Licensing of server applications (which are under Software Assurance) may be ported under certain conditions.
The Virtual Server offering does not provide Microsoft applications.
Please note that you are responsible for the correct licensing of applications installed on the Virtual Server platform, especially for compliance with the Microsoft guidelines.
Linux containers (LXC) share the operating system kernel of a single Linux OS installation. An LXC encapsulates applications and their operating environment, such as process trees, network, user IDs, etc.
Key differences between VM and LXC:
Disk space requirements in the range of gigabytes
Requires a classic boot (boot) of the operating system, apps load several minutes
Memory requirements in the range of megabytes
Operating system is already booted (booted), apps are almost immediately available.
Benefit: Immediately install, move to other virtual servers, share, or re-enable older packages
Disadvantage: One operating system instance must handle many containers simultaneously. Therefore, this technology is limited in performance.
For applications with medium and high performance requirements, A1 recommends using virtual machines.
