This particular license of Server 2022 Standard supports up to 16 physical cores, regardless of the number of CPU sockets in a system, and allows use of two instances of the server OS (either a host and one virtual machine, through a Hyper-V container, or two virtual machines). If you need to run on processors with more cores, there are additional license packs we can add to your order. If a higher number of virtual machines is desired, consider using the Datacenter version instead.
Note: This license supports up to 16 cores. If your server has more cores, we will need to quote additional license packs.
Model: Microsoft P73-08328
