ESX Server licensing and Microsoft EES
I have a question regarding the new ees licensing and how we license servers.
We run Windows 7 Enterprise alongside Office 2010 Professional Plus and we use Outlook OWA on the desktop.
We previously have had Schools agreements and my understanding was if we had virtualisation such as VMware in place, we would purchase a Windows 2008 data centre license for each ESX host and this would license us to run unlimited Windows Servers on those hosts.
Does this change with the new EES Microsoft Licensing?
We have 3 ESX hosts and because each host has 2 processors we had to purchase 2 Windows Server licenses per Processor. I have heard from one supplier that we now need to purchase a license for every Microsoft server VM we run.
If someone could help clarify this it would be most appreciated..
