I'm about to buy 2 servers in order to create an Hyper-V cluster (failover & load balancing) to host 20 VMs.
Each server will have 2 processors with 8 cores.
How can I licensing those serveur and their VMs if I want to do it with Windows server 2019 standard?
As I need to move VMs to one server while I'm doing the maintenance on the other, I'm wondering if I need to get licence for 20 VMs on both servers so 40 VMs or can I get just 10 licences for VMs on each server?
I know that I can buy 2 Windows server 2019 Datacenter 16core pack but I just want to see how mutch it will cost me if I do it with Windows server 2019 standard.
Last question: Will Windows serveur 2022 have the same licencing method?
Many thx for your answers!
