If I purchase SQL Server 2012 Enterprise with SA Cores for virtual server what else can I install on that host?

Last Modified: 2014-05-28

Please can yo help me to understand 1 aspect of SQL Server 2012 licensing on a virtual environment.  If I have a host that has 8 cores and I buy an enterprise license with SA for 8 cores then does that mean I can have as many other SQL Server 2012 machines on that host and they are covered for VMotion (moving around on different hosts)

Kind Regards
