How may cpu's can I have per server runing server2008r2 standard?

I am a small company, virtualizing 3 servers (for now) using ESXi 5.5. I purchased 3 copies of server2008r2 standard through volume licensing. For each server I build, how many cpu's can I allocate in the VMware build of the server?

Thank you
