Windows Server 2008/2012 OS Per Processor Licencing

Microsoft have withdrawn Windows Server 2008 Web Edition and Windows Server 2008 Enterprise Edition licences under the SPLA licence reporting scheme which we operate under. These have been replaced by Windows Server 2012 Standard Edition or Windows Server 2012 Datacentre edition licences although we can still provision and licence their 2008 equivalents i.e. Windows 2008 Server Standard Edition.

Examples (based on single CPU):
Windows Server 2008/2012 Standard Edition - - £13.56 + vat p/m
Windows Server 2008/2012 Datacenter Edition - - £108.54 + vat p/m

PLEASE NOTE that the "per processor" licencing will be available up until April 2019 for Windows 2012 and older Windows versions at which point Microsoft's new core licensing will then take effect (see below).

Windows Server 2016 OS Core Licencing
From 1st October 2016, along with the launch of Windows Server 2016, Microsoft have changed the way they licence Windows from a “per processor” model to a "per CPU core" model. 
This means that the number of software licences that are required depends on how many CPU’s the server (where Windows is to be installed on) is using and how many core’s each CPU has i.e. Quad (4) core, Hex (6) core, Oct (8) core etc.
Each Windows 2016 licence covers 2 cores however Microsoft have stipulated that a minimum of 8 cores must be reported even if the processor has less than this.


Examples:  (based on an 8 core or less CPU):-
Windows Server 2016 Standard Edition 2cre Lic - £3.39 + vat x 4 =  £13.56 + vat p/m
Windows Server 2016 Datacenter Edition 2cre Lic- £27.14 + vat x 4 = £108.54 + vat p/m


We can offer various other Microsoft Licence options and are happy to provide advice on the solution best suited to your requirements.

MS SQL Server Core Licensing

Please note that Microsoft have changed the way they licence MS SQL from a “per processor” model to a “per CPU core” model. 

This means that the number of software licences that are required depends on how many physical CPU’s the server (where MSSQL is to be installed on) is using and how many core’s each CPU has i.e. Quad (4) core,  Hex (6) core, Oct (8) or Hexadeca (16) core.

Under the Microsoft SPLA licence rental scheme, each MSSQL licence covers 2 cores with a minimum of 2 licences (4 cores) to be reported, even if processor has less.

Pricing as follows (based on a minimum of 2 licences being required per CPU):-

MS SQL Server 2014/2016 Express Edition – Free
MS SQL Server 2014/2016 Web Edition - £10.77 + vat p/m per licence*
MS SQL Server 2014/2016 Standard Edition - £128.45 + vat p/m per licence*
