MS licensing in a virtualised environmwnt
Our MS licenses (EES) are soon to expire and with us moving over to a virtualised environment how would i license our SQL for SIMS and our Exchange. SQL used to be licensed per processor for us as that was the cheapest option as the SIMS only ever had one physical processor and because we were still on the agreement where we could license per processor it worked out a lot cheaper.
I understand that the virtualised environment needs the data centre license but really stuck on the SQL side.
We will be having 2 hosts/hypervisors running server 2012 r2 with hyper-v each with 2x 6 core 12 thread processors in them.
How does the licensing for SQL and Exchange work?
