I need to set up a virtual machine for new software.
I received software CPU requirements:
2 GHz or more
Xeon quad-core server grade processor
I am planning to set up the following:
Windows Server 2016 Standard
Number of virtual sockets: 2
Number of cores per socket: 2
Total number of cores: 4
I am pretty sure that Windows Server 2016 Standard - License comes as a 2-core license at the price of CAD $1,099.56.
Based on my virtual machine setup mentioned above do I need to purchase 2 of these for the future audits?
Also, if someone has any additional details/advice on current licensing process please let me know. I need to upgrade all of my Windows Server 2008 R2 servers to 2016.
Thanks for your help, much appreciated.
