Altaro has published a free e-book called Licensing Microsoft Server in a Virtual Environment. I know this is a hot topic because it’s one of this site’s top search results every month. The ebook, written by Eric Siron, covers:
- The concept of Microsoft licensing in a virtual environment
- Windows Server, Hyper-V Server 2012 & 2012 R2 licensing
- Difference between keys & licenses
- Understand license transfers, stacking & implications for a cluster
- Mapped example diagrams of common virtual licensing environment
Altaro is also running a webinar on this topic on Decentber 4th, featuring fellow Hyper-V MVP Thomas Maurer and Andrew Syrewicze. This webinar will run for 45 minutes with live Q&A, starting at 10am EST or 3pm GMT.
