New license model for Windows Server 2016 for the first time
In the previous versions, the standard and Datacenter licenses for two physical CPUs are valid. With the new licensing model, a change took place from a Pro-CPU to a Pro-Core licensing. It is assumed that a server has at least 8 cores per processor and a total of at least two processors, ie a total of 16 cores. For each server, 16 cores are the minimum, and at least 8 cores must be licensed per CPU. Thus the license costs for servers with up to 4 processors and up to 8 cores remain identical. Better equipped servers need to be upgraded with additional licenses. The additional licenses are available in the steps of 2, 4 and 16 cores. It is also necessary to purchase the appropriate users or device CALs.
