[Windows Software] SQL Server CPU Licening in virtualised environment
I am just trying to confirm whether we are covered on our SQL server licences.
We have purchased 6 x 1 cpu editions of sql 2005 standard edition licences a while ago when we were running 3 physical servers with 2 CPUs in each. These servers have since been decomissioned and are no longer in use.
We have since implemented a virtual solution running across 3 host machines with 2 physical CPUs in each host. As we have enough sql server licences to cover all the physical CPUs across all host machines are we able to deploy 'as many' SQL servers as we need across all these host machines.
