Windows Server R2 will continue to have the same licensing model as Windows Server , with two editions available in volume licensing: Standard edition and Datacenter edition. A single license covers up to two physical processors. Here are just a few examples: Enterprise-class virtual machine density, performance, and mobility with best-in-class performance and scale for Microsoft workloads High-performance file-based storage on cost-effective, industry-standard hardware with inbox storage virtualization and tiering Highly available, in-box hybrid networking for bridging physical and virtual networks in a multi-tenant environment and across premises Protection and recovery of assets for all your workloads with simple and affordable disaster recovery options Flexible remote access to corporate resources from virtually anywhere and on any device while helping to protect corporate information. Because there is feature parity between Windows Server R2 Standard and Datacenter editions, your decision will be based on your virtualization strategy, as virtualization rights are the only differentiator between the editions. If your strategy calls for a highly virtualized environment, Datacenter edition will provide you with optimum flexibility because it allows for unlimited virtualization. This edition gives you the elasticity to add and move virtual OSEs across Datacenter licensed servers without needing to track the virtual OSE count on that server. If you purchase Standard edition today but find you need to expand the virtualization capacity of your licensed server, you can do one of the following: Purchase additional Standard edition licenses and assign them to the same physical server, giving you the rights to run additional instances of Windows Server.
