    Core based licensing: Windows Server 2016 Standard and Datacenter
    • All physical cores in the server must be licensed. Servers are licensed based on
    the number of processor cores in the physical server.
    • A minimum of 16 core licenses is required for each server.
    • A minimum of 8 core licenses is required for each physical processor.
    • Core licenses will be sold in packs of two.
    • Eight 2-core packs will be the minimum required to license each physical server.
    The 2-core pack for each edition is one-eighth the price of a 2-processor
    license for corresponding Windows Server 2012 R2 editions.
    • Standard Edition provides rights for up to two OSEs or Hyper-V containers
    when all physical cores in the server are licensed. For every two additional
    VMs, all the cores in the server have to be licensed again.
    • The price of 16-core licenses of Windows Server 2016 Datacenter and Standard
    edition will be the same price as the 2-processor license of the corresponding
    editions of the Windows Server 2012 R2 version.
