CALs and 2K8 R2 Datacenter Virtual Instances
Do you need to buy CALs for each virtual instance of Server 2k8 R2, or do you need to just buy CALs for the Host OS (e.g 2k8 R2 Datacenter)
To me this seems a simple question, but google has failed me. I am going to be completly replacing the server infrastructure in my school. Its going to be highly visualised and hence my attention has been drawn to the datacenter edition because of the virtualisation rights. I am hoping to increase the number of server instances to make it simpler to manage and more resistant to failure. However, if I have to purchase CALs for each instance, then it might be too expensive to do so.
Please give me good news.
FYI: I don't have an EES, traditionally we have bought through our LEA.
