    2008 Hyper-V licensing

    Morning

    Just wondered if anyone knows how using Hyper-V works with the Microsoft Schools Agreement. I've read the info about the ability to run a number of instances on a hyper-v server depending on which 2008 license you have but can't find anything regarding School Agreements.

    I don't believe the Schools agreement entitles you to anything extra for hyper-v, it just depends on which version of server you license.

    One instance for standard, four for Enterprise and unlimited for Datacenter.

    Ask Emma - she knows more than you could ever possibly want to know about licensing!

    I got a reply from my licensing guy.

    Its 1 for 1 for the Server 2008 standard license so you can install 1 instance on to that server license without having to purchase anymore licenses.

    If you upgrade to to the 2008 enterprise then you can use 4 (think its 4) guest vms without paying any extra. Its onyl £70+vat for enterprise compared to £21 each for server licenses... Not worth me spending £10k on new kit to save £14 a year just yet.
