Decided to ventilate the issue of licensing for virtual machines running on Citrix XenServer or VMWare.
The Internet is very much just about this, but completely confused.
found this phrase:"One license of Windows Server 2012 Standard or Datacenter is sold on a 2 CPU physical host servers (either on Microsoft Hyper-V or VMware vSphere)"
It kind of sheds light on what is required.
I would like to clarify, I have a Blade Server. If I understand you correctly, then I need to buy Std licenses according to the number of blades, as each blade has on-Board 2 percent. And each license will allow me to run on each blade is not more than 2 virtual machines. If I want to run more, for every blade you need to buy another std license for each blade.
Am I to understand the licensing?
Thank you for the answers.
PS: found this
In it something is written understandable. By the way the phrase is taken from there.
Otherwise, the Internet, and on the website of Microsoft, nothing is clear. There are practically no examples.
