Hi Experts,

just to be sure for my budget, please can you verify my license model ?

The new Exchange environment needs:

2 x CAS HUB MBX Server
1 x MBX Server

Is it correct to order 3 Exchange 2013 Standard licenses ?

Every single instance of Exchange requires a licence.
Therefore if you are installing three servers then you need three licences.

The only difference between standard and enterprise editions are the number of databases that it can hold.

As an aside, I never deploy separate roles. All roles on all servers, even if doing a DAG. Much easier to maintain that way.

yes because of an DAG I have asked, because I will also create a DAG with two nodes.

The only thing with the DAG is to ensure that you are using Windows 2012 or 2012 R2, as they can do the DAG on standard edition. With Windows 2008 R2 you need Enterprise edition of Windows.
