Crucial Licensing Changes in Windows 2016 Release

Windows 2016 is almost here & there are going to be important changes to note around licensing!

I have to count now?  I have to do math? Come on Microsoft, you make licensing more complicated than coding. Well, for some of us, over the past couple of years we’ve sort of become accustomed to the way SQL is licensed. It’s the direction a lot of manufacturers are going. Around the same time, Microsoft also released Window Server 2012. However, instead of being Core-based, Windows Server’s licensing focused on being CPU or Socket-based. Whether you chose Windows Standard or Datacenter, you were required to license all the physical sockets in the host. The main difference between Windows Standard versus Datacenter was how many VMs you received. Windows Standard allowed you to license two VM’s per license and Datacenter jumped to unlimited VMs per license.
