Windows Server licenses for Self-Managed servers
The Windows Server operating system is supported on our Self-Managed servers, with additional license fees required. Windows Server licenses are available on a month-to-month basis.
Windows Operating System
- Windows Server Standard 2012 R2; 2016 & 2019
- Windows Datacenter 2012 R2 ; 2016 & 2019
Windows Remote Desktop License
Remote Desktop supports two concurrent connections for administrators to access the server.
If you require additional users to access the server, you will need to purchase a Remote Desktop License for each user.
Windows Virtual Machine (VM) Licenses
- Windows Server Standard offers a single VM license (Additional VM’s will each need an additional Windows Server Standard license)
- Windows Server Datacenter offers unlimited VM’s
Note: These licenses apply per processor and therefore each CPU will require a license. Windows 2016 is licensed per core, so when an additional CPU is added, the number of cores increases and therefore an additional license is required.
Our support is limited to the installation of the Operating System and licensing on standard server builds. If you experience any technical issues, refer to Microsoft’s Technet articles.
