How about migrating VMX to AWS? https://aws.amazon.com/ec2/vm-import/

I donít have such needs. I normally setup my testing systems in the cloud due to ease and flexible cost. You canít run consumer Windows in AWS though. Microsoft licensing for cloud is only Windows Server in AWS

Usually it will be cost, operational requirements, availability, adaptability and so forth.

It's basically licensing from Microsoft that makes things kinda confusing here. AWS only offers Pay-As-You-Go licensing for Window Servers. If you were to port an existing Windows Client image into AWS, generally it falls into BYOL.

Microsoft Azure does offer Windows client, but only if you own a developer license as stipulated here https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azu.../client-images

Your OEM license is not transferrable, so you can't image your existing Windows 10 that comes with your machine into the AWS or Azure or any other devices. If you have a retail license, I believe you need to revoke from your existing device before you can re-activate in the cloud. This is what I understood, they might not be entirely correct though.

AWS workspace does offers virtual Windows client for your to remotely manage them, if that is what you want. It might not fit your use case though. Perhaps it would be nice to know more detail into why you need to image the entire Windows client into the cloud. Could that server be running in Windows Server too ? Can you do a reinstallation ?
