Hyper-V and Software Assurance


  • Hi,

    If we order a Windows Server 2012 Datacenter edition R2 when this is release, do we need to have Software Assurance to run as many virtual machines as we want ? Or doesnt SA have anything to do with how many virtual machines you are running ?

    Thanks for reply

    /Regards Andreas

  • SA has nothing to do with how many Server OS VM's you can run, but SA for WindowsClient is useful if you are virtualising WindowsClient OS...
