Hi,
imho it is not a good idea to run Terminal Server AND SharePoint 2013 on the same machine.

What edition of SharePoint do you plan to run? Server or Foundation?
SharePoint 2013 is very resource intensive.

About SharePoint licensing:
For SharePoint Foundation you need to have proper Windows CALs (each internal user accessing SharePoint needs a Windows CAL which you should alreay have) therefore it is often called as "free" version.
For SharePoint Server you need addtionally for each server a server license as well as a standard CAL (for SharePoint Server Standard) or a Standard AND a Enterprise CAL for SharePoint Server Enterprise.

Sorry I have no experienes about TS licensing.

The software We're trying to test requires Sharepoint, I checked the paper again, Sharepoint Foundation is another option we can use.
I haven't used sharepoint foundation, can you tell what you use for. It seems like storage and collaboration for office files and others, but there may be some good features except the basic feature.

Also does Sharepoint Foundation server require SharepointCAL besides Windows Server standard CAL?

Hi,
no, SharePoint Foundation does not need additional CALs - just Windows CAL.

Which software are you trying to test? Just be sure to validate both the version and the edition of SharePoint (Foundation vs. Server Std/Ent // 2010 vs 2013).

Second SharePoint does currently not support Windows Server 2012 R2 (we are all waiting for SP1 for SharePoint).
