When all physical cores on the server are licensed, Datacenter edition provides rights to use unlimited operating system environments (OSEs) or Hyper-V containers and unlimited containers on the licensed server.

Standard Edition: is ideal for customers with low density or non-virtualized environments. When all physical cores on the server are licensed, Standard edition provides rights to use two Operating System Environments (OSEs) or Hyper-V containers and unlimited containers on the licensed server.

Essentials Edition: is a cloud-connected first server, ideal for small businesses with up to 25 users and 50 devices. Essentials is a good option for customers currently using the Foundation Edition.
