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 server operating system Windows Server 2022 Standard combines physical and virtual networks for the provision of data and services via Cloud-based Server and is thus ideally suited to meet the IT requirements of SMEs. With Windows 10 as the operating system, many optimizations as well as new, powerful functions, this edition is thus ideally equipped for all workloads.
Important decision factor for the purchase of the Standard Edition of Windows Server 2022 are the available possibilities for virtualization - among other things by means of containers. Thus, this represents indispensable functions especially for smaller companies that want to provide reliable infrastructures in this area as well.
Windows Server 2022 enables companies in the Standard edition to more closely connect on-premises environments with the Cloud, including via the Microsoft Azure Services, which provide additional hybrid functions as well as security layers.
Licensing of the Windows Server 2022 Standard edition is Core-based, whereby Pro Server is always based on 16 cores as the minimum number. Server with a higher number of cores can be conveniently and flexibly licensed in addition with 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, which 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 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 some virtualization capabilities, including data and application security, at a higher level than its predecessor: many enhancements and additions to features already known there, as well as the ability to create software-defined hyperconverged (HCI) infrastructure platforms over it; these offer even more advantages for Server- and Desktop-virtualization through easier deployment 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, the Windows Server 2022 Edition Standard offers limited virtualization - it is therefore designed more for companies where this plays a minor role. Therefore, the number of virtual machines and Hyper-V containers that can be run is also limited here, with a RAM limit of 24 TB, as in the more comprehensive edition. For more on this, see below.
In Windows Server 2022 Standard Edition, the Storage Replica storage function is available with restrictions, 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 the Windows Server 2022 Standard edition are the following key features for analytics, container use and hybrid infrastructure unification:
System Insights for comprehensive Server analysis
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 allows comprehensive insights into the operation of locally deployed Server by analyzing performance indicators and events to make accurate predictions for the reactive management of Windows Server instances, which can lead to a reduction in effort and thus help organizations reduce operational costs.
Support for Kubernetes and Linux
Windows Server 2022 also offers comprehensive container support in the Standard edition. When using Hyper-V containers, however, it is important to note that the license for the Standard edition only allows 2 containers, as only 2 virtual machines (VMs) are allowed for them; also, no support for host monitoring is included. Windows Containers, on the other hand, can be operated in unlimited numbers.
In addition, Kubernetes and Linux are now supported more comprehensively, 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.
Greater data and network protection 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 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 allows Azure management and Azure services to be extended to any infrastructure.
- Through the Windows Admin Center, Azure services such as Azure Backup, Azure Site Recovery, and Azure Monitor can be enabled quickly and easily.
Thus, Azure Services in Windows Server 2022 Standard not only provide improved protection of on-premises Active Directorys, but also easier synchronization and backup of data.

Windows Server 2022 is based on the Windows 10 operating system.

Other requirements are additionally dependent on the respective system configuration as well as other installed applications.

Further for each physical Server at least 2 processors are used, from which the minimum number of 16 cores results.
Serverif the number of cores is higher than 16, the license must be supplemented with 2-Core packages to Windows Server 2022 Standard.
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 Pro Core license.
