Windows Server licensing

Microsoft Windows Server can be deployed in a cloud-based or hardware-based infrastructure. To properly license a Standard, Datacenter or Enterprise Server instance, organisations need the appropriate licences. The number of cores to be licensed can be calculated using our licence configurator. The number of physical processors and the number of active cores per processor are critical here. You must also take into account the maximum number of physical or virtual Windows Server instances running concurrently on a host. If you have any questions about legally compliant licensing, feel free to contact our license experts at any time.
