  • Hi!

    Core-based licensing requires all physical cores in the server to be licensed. Servers are licensed based on the number of processor cores in the physical server.

    • A minimum of 8 core licenses is required for each physical processor and a minimum of 16 core licenses is required for each server.

    • Core licenses are sold in packs of two.

    • Standard Edition provides rights for up to 2 Operating System Environments or Hyper-V containers when all physical cores in the server are licensed. For each additional 1 or 2 VMs, all the physical cores in the server must be licensed again.

    • The price of a set of 16 core licenses (for a 2-processor server) for Windows Server 2016 Datacenter and Standard editions is the same price as the 2-processor license of the corresponding edition of Windows Server 2012 R2.


    You can have a look at the following page regarding the licensing of Windows Server 2016 Standard edition:

    For more information check the Windows Server 2016 licensing datasheet

    Hope this helps!

    Best regards,

  • The host license would allow you to run and activate two Windows Server Standard 2016 guest VMs using the same activation key. If you're going to run 2008 R2 guests then you'll need to come up with installation media and activation keys for them. These are technical forums. Legal licensing questions should be directed towards your reseller's trained licensing specialist or call microsoft directly.
