Questions of Windows server 2016 license RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi, I have some questions about windows server 2016 standard core licensing + SA.

    My office plan to build two Windows server 2016 standard VMs on cloud. (One is 4 cores, another is 8 cores)

    Since the host is owned by cloud provider, we don't have the information about the quantity of physical processors and cores.

    May I know that whether I need to calculator how much physical processors and cores of the host since I only have 2 VMs & use 12 virtual cores on my solution.

  • This is a technical forum, not a legal forum.  As a result, any 'legal' response offered here would simply be an opinion - not something your lawyers and auditors would accept as a business practice.

    I would expect your cloud provider should be able to answer your questions.

    If you do not want to rely on your cloud provider, speak with a trained Microsoft licensing specialist.  Your authorized Microsoft reseller should be able to provide you access to one.  Or you can call Microsoft directly.
