Windows Server 2012 R2: the heart of Microsoft’s Cloud OS
Windows Server 2012 R2 captures the experience Microsoft has gained from building and operating public clouds to deliver a highly dynamic, available, and cost-effective server platform for your datacenter and private cloud. It offers a scalable, multi tenant-aware cloud infrastructure that can help your organization’s distributed and mobile workforce connect more securely across premises and enable IT to respond to business needs faster and more efficiently. The following information provides an overview of your key licensing options.
Datacenter edition - is ideal for customers who want to have a highly virtualized private and hybrid cloud environment. As always, it provides access to all the product features and enables unlimited instances of Windows Server with each license, enabling your virtual environment to grow as you do. The licensing for Datacenter edition will continue to be processor plus CAL (Client Access License), with each license covering up to two physical processors on a single server.
Standard edition - is ideal for those customers who want to have a physical or lightly virtualized environment. This edition enables you to run up to two virtual instances of Windows Server with each license and provides all the same features as Datacenter edition. The licensing for Standard edition will continue to be processor plus CAL, with each license covering up to two physical processors on a single server, just like Datacenter edition.
Essentials edition - is ideal for small businesses that have up to 25 users and want to have a simpler, pre-configured connection to cloud-based services. This edition enables you to run a single virtual instance of Essentials. The licensing for Essentials will continue to be a server license for a two processor server that does not require CALs.
Foundation edition - is ideal for small businesses that have up to 15 users and want a general purpose server. The licensing for Foundation has not changed; it continues to be a server license for a one-processor server that does not require CALs and is sold only through OEM (original equipment manufacturer). Contact us for this edition.
Standard edition - license allows to run only two virtual machines.
Datacenter edition - on a single physical host with this license, you can run an unlimited number of virtual machines (recall that these virtual machines can be easily activated using AVMA - Automatic Virtual Machine Activation).
Recommended System Requirements
A minimum of 1.4 GHz 64-bit EMT64 or AMD64 processor. Quad Core Recommended for production systems.
Support for security features like NX Bit and DEP (Data Execution Prevention).
The processor should support CMPXCHG16b, LAHF/SAHF, and PrefetchWNeeds.

For Core installation, a minimum Disk Space of 32 GB is required. Additional 4 GB is necessary for GUI installation.
Disk Space Capacity Planning:
Microsoft Support recommends the following:
3 times the RAM size limited up to 32 GB. Which means 96 GB (32×3 = 96 GB).
Additional disk space of 10-12 GB for additional roles and features installed based on server roles. For 32 GB Systems with GUI (96 + 12 = 108 GB).
Additional 10 GB is required for Windows Updates. So, 108 GB +10 GB = 118 GB for 32 GB Systems.
10 GB extra space for miscellaneous files and logs (Perfmon, Server Trace, etc.) (128 GB for 32 GB Systems).
Any Disk Space requirements for applications that are installed on the OS partition are additional. For example SQL, Exchange, SharePoint MS-CRM, etc.
