Microsoft Is Simplifying Windows Server Licensing

Too Good to Be True? Nope!

by Lane Shelton | 04.17.17

Hold onto your hats, everybody. Microsoft is simplifying Windows Server Licensing. Coming May 2017, Microsoft is introducing a new 16-pack of Core Licenses for Windows Server, System Center, CIS Suites, and Premium Assurance in addition to the existing 2-core licenses. This new SKU will be a convenient option for companies licensing servers with 16 or fewer cores. Instead of purchasing eight 2-core packs, you can now purchase a single 16-core pack. It can also serve as an optional base pack for licensing servers with more cores. The 2-core licenses will continue to be available, and you have the choice of two SKUs. There is also no difference in pricing between one 16-pack and eight 2-packs so you can choose the combination which best suits your company.
