Trying to figure out the best server software to get for my needs..... I built 2 mini pc servers using the following parts below. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16856101134&Tpk=N82E16856101134 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819116503&Tpk=N82E16819116503 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820239289&Tpk=N82E16820239289 x2 I successfully got both up and running with 3 VMs each using MS Windows Server 2012 Standard Evaluation. I built these for testing purposes but they have been perfect for my needs. But now my activation period is set to expire, though I did to a successful rearm for now. I want to permanently activate windows server but Im a bit confused on what version I should try to get. I came across a copy that says "Microsoft Windows Server 2012 Standard - 2 CPUs/2VM Base License", but not sure what the 2 cpu/2vm actually means and what the actual limitations are for that. Then there is the "Windows Server Standard 2012 64-Bit 5 Client". Does that mean I can install this copy on up to 5 separate pcs? And if so again is there a limitation on the number of VMs I can run. I was looking to plan on adding a larger server to run up to an additional 20 VMs to the 2 servers (6 VMs) Im running now in the near future. Just trying to figure out my best options.
