Microsoft Windows Server 2022 Standard 2-Core
Flexibly supplement your licensing needs for Windows Server 2022 Standard with the 2-Core Packages from Wiresoft! The Standard Edition of Windows Server 2022 has been developed especially for use in smaller data centers: it accordingly offers sufficient possibilities for virtualization, combined with good scalability, strong performance as well as effective security layers, as required for the reliable protection of data and applications in multi-cloud environments.
The Windows Server 2022 Standard server operating system combines physical and virtual networks for delivering data and services through cloud-based servers, making it a great fit for meeting the IT needs of SMBs. With Windows 10 as the operating system, many optimizations as well as new, powerful features, this edition is thus best equipped for all workloads.
An important decision-making factor for the purchase of the Standard Edition of Windows Server 2022 is the available virtualization options - including via containers. Thus this represents indispensable functions in particular for smaller enterprises, which want to provide also in this area reliable infrastructures.
Windows Server 2022 in the standard edition enables companies to more closely connect on-premises environments with the cloud, including via Microsoft Azure Services, which provide additional hybrid functions as well as security layers.
Licensing of Windows Server 2022 Standard Edition is core-based, with a minimum of 16 cores per server. Servers with a higher number of cores can be licensed conveniently and flexibly with additional 2-core packages.
The Windows Server 2022 Standard 2-Core Package can be found at Wiresoft as used software - with the great advantage of a significantly lower price than for corresponding new software - and without differences in all typical features that this edition offers in terms of functions - especially in virtualization -, security and performance. Detailed information about all features and functions of Windows Server 2022 Standard Edition as well as about the Microsoft licensing conditions applicable to 2-core packages is provided in the following overview.
Windows Server 2022 Standard for the operation of multi-cloud environments
The Windows Server 2022 Standard edition also offers a number of virtualization options, which also affect the security of data and applications - this at a higher level than the previous version: many improvements and additions to already known functions contribute to this, as well as the possibilities to create software-defined hyper-convergent (HCI) infrastructure platforms; these offer even more advantages for server and desktop virtualization through easier implementation and scaling, as well as better manageability.
Comparison: What features does Windows Server 2022 Standard offer?
The decision to purchase the Standard Edition of Windows Server 2022 is usually influenced by the fact that certain virtualization features are either not available or only available in limited performance: Hyper-V, for example, can only be used here to a very limited extent, and the same applies to Shielded Virtual Machines (VMs) as well as Storage Spaces Direct and storage replication, as well as SDN (Software Defined Networking) and SDS
(Software Defined Storage).
Virtualization options with Windows Server 2022 Standard
Basically, Windows Server 2022 Edition Standard offers limited virtualization - it is therefore designed more for those companies where this plays a minor role. As a result, the number of virtual machines and Hyper-V containers that can be run is also limited here, with a RAM limit of 24TB, as in the more comprehensive edition. See below for more information.
In Windows Server 2022 Standard Edition, the Storage Replica storage feature is available with limitations, but Storage Spaces Direct is not supported. Storage Replica supports both synchronous and asynchronous replication of data and prevents data loss at the file system level: synchronous replication mirrors data at physical locations with a fail-safe volume, and asynchronous replication performs this function between locations over network links with higher latency.
Other new features of Windows Server 2022 Standard
Also available in Windows Server 2022 Standard Edition are the following key features for analytics, container use, and hybrid infrastructure unification:
System Insights for comprehensive server analytics
In Windows Server 2022, the predictive analytics feature System Insights is available for this purpose, which is supported by a machine learning model for more efficient functioning. System Insights provides comprehensive insight into the operation of locally deployed servers by analyzing performance metrics and events to make accurate predictions for reactive management of Windows Server instances, which can reduce effort and help organizations reduce operational costs.
Kubernetes and Linux Support
Windows Server 2022 also offers extensive container support in Standard Edition. When using Hyper-V containers, however, it's important to note that the Standard Edition license only allows 2 containers, as only 2 virtual machines (VMs) are allowed for them; it also doesn't include support for host monitoring. Windows containers, on the other hand, can be run in unlimited numbers.
In addition, Kubernetes and Linux are now more comprehensively supported, so that Linux and Windows containers managed with Kubernetes can be used in parallel. Specifically for Kubernetes, new features such as container networking are also available in the standard edition, among others.
Higher protection of data and network with Azure Services
With Azure, hybrid capabilities are also available in Windows Server 2022 Standard to work seamlessly in an on-premises data center as well as in the cloud. Azure alone provides a cloud with an end-to-end hybrid infrastructure with unified security, identity, and management capabilities:
- Azure Active Directory enables universal management and protection of identities with help across multiple environments.
- Azure Arc extends Azure management and Azure services to any infrastructure.
- Through the Windows Admin Center, Azure services such as Azure Backup, Azure Site Recovery, and Azure Monitor can be quickly and easily enabled.
Thus, Azure Services in Windows Server 2022 Standard not only provide enhanced protection of on-premises Active Directory, but also easier synchronization and backup of data.
Hardware requirements for installing and running Windows Server 2022 Standard
Windows Server 2022 is based on the Windows 10 operating system. In order to use Windows Server 2022 Standard in an unrestricted and secure manner, the underlying hardware must meet all of the minimum requirements listed below. Other requirements are additionally dependent on the respective system configuration as well as other installed applications.
- Hard disk space: 32 GB
- Random access memory (RAM): 512 MB
- Server desktop space: 2 GB
- Processor: 64-bit architecture
- Processor speed: 1.4 GHz
- Graphics card: 1,024 x 768 pixels, Super VGA support
- Network card: Gigabit Ethernet, 1x
Licensing with Windows Server 2022 Standard 2-Core Package
The licensing of a server with Windows Server 2022 Standard Edition is also carried out for used software according to the Microsoft licensing regulations: The number of cores is used as the basis for calculating the license requirement. The following terms and conditions apply.
General Microsoft License Terms for Windows Server 2022 Standard
Server software such as Windows Server 2022 Standard Edition is always licensed based on the physical hardware used. In addition to the number of physical core processors, the number of virtual servers is also taken into account. Each server license covers 2 physical processor cores. According to the Microsoft licensing regulations, a minimum number of 8 cores per processor is always taken as a basis - even if the existing hardware has less than 8 cores. Furthermore, a minimum of 2 processors is assumed for each physical server, resulting in a minimum number of 16 cores.
Servers with more than 16 cores must be licensed with Windows Server 2022 Standard 2-Core Packages.
Additional licensing requirements for Windows Server 2022 Standard
In a Hyper-V environment, all processors must be licensed that correspond to the physical processor cores. The Windows Server Standard edition entitles you to run a maximum of two Hyper-V instances per core license. If more Hyper-V instances are required with the Standard edition, all active cores must be re-licensed for this purpose.
In addition to the Windows Server Standard license, all clients - users as well as end devices - that access Windows Server 2022 must also be provided with their own client access license (CAL). These User and Device CALs are also available from Wiresoft at a reasonable second-hand price.
