VENDOSOFT license configurator
for Windows Server 2016

If you wish to calculate your license needs  for Windows Server 2016 yourself, you should be familiar with these four rules!

Rule no. 1: Each physical processor is rated with at least eight logical cores.
Rule no. 2: Each physical server is rated with at least 16 logical cores.
Rule no. 3: Taking into account rules 1 and 2, all of the physical and active cores in the servers must be licensed – only then will a standard server have two, and a data centre server have unlimited virtualisation rights.
Rule no. 4: In order to obtain two more VM rights with the Standard Edition, all physical active cores must be re-licensed.

You can calculate the licensed cores you need using the license calculator below.
Simply fill out the form – your VENDOSOFT advisor will use this to determine the number of Microsoft server licenses that you actually need!
