Product information "MICROSOFT SQL SERVER 2016 STANDARD 2-CORE"

Microsoft SQL Server 2016 Standard 2-Core

The SQL Server 2016 Standard 2-Core edition provides enterprises with a reliable scalable as well as hybrid relational database platform to build intelligent applications for Desktop, Server and the web, supported by its high scalability and performance as well as advanced security features.

This edition offers many new features for in-database queries and analytics, including Hadoop and Cloud integration as well as real-time and R analytics, supported by Advanced Analytics capabilities. Furthermore, in-memory performance, support for JSON (JavaScript Object Notation) as well as PolyBase for Transact-SQL queries and new Hybrid Cloud scenarios should be mentioned briefly, so that companies receive even more detailed results, which can be published as reports on many end devices with the diverse visualization options.

At Wiresoft, SQL Server 2016 Standard 2-Core is available as used software - at a lower price than new - with older versions of SQL Server like this regularly discontinued. As used software, this Core-based SQL Server license can be used to its full extent with the maximum scalability, performance and security typical of the edition and is therefore particularly attractive for companies and organizations that use more powerful Server and for which the alternative CAL-based licensing is therefore not an option. Licensing of Microsoft SQL Server 2016 Standard 2-Core is done according to the official Microsoft license management terms. For detailed information on new enhancements and new features included in SQL Server 2016 Standard and your optimal licensing, please see the following text.

In contrast to older SQL Server versions, here the number of cores Pro processor forms the basis for the exact licensing of a SQL Server; each physical Core of the server requires its own license, whereby cores are always only licensed in pairs.

The total need of Core licenses for the SQL Server results from the maximum number of cores, basically Microsoft takes as a basis a minimum of 8 licenses Pro Server - so the following conditions apply:

  • Each physical or virtual processor core requires a license.
  • Consequently, all physical and active cores must be licensed.
  • Each processor is charged with a minimum of 8 cores.
  • Each Server is charged with a minimum of 16 cores.
  • Licensing is always done in pairs and the Core licenses for SQL Server 2016 Standard are available as packages of 2.

These Microsoft license terms also apply to used software. If you have any questions about your correct licensing with SQL Server 2016 Standard 2-Core packages, please feel free to contact us.
