Microsoft Windows Server virtual core licensing option

Jump to solution

Microsoft announced the change to the Windows Server virtual core licensing - “With the virtual core licensing option, customers can elect to license Windows Server by the number of virtual cores they are using in virtual machines, making Windows Server easier to license when virtualizing or outsourcing.”

Has this option been made available to the on-prem platform?

Thanks John,

The "Microsoft Server Core" metric with "Minimum cores per VM" of 8 seems to work ok for this new license option.

Will we get an integrated metric in FNMS, aside from that report, that will be able to chose the best option on a per cluster basis?
