What Are the Dedicated Windows Hosting Requirements?

Below are the minimum system requirements to install Windows Server 2012:

What Is New in Windows Server 2012?

If you’ve been using Windows 8 on your personal computer, then you’re going to be familiar with Windows Server 2012. If you’re still using a previous version of Windows, or Windows Server 2008 then there’s going to be a bit of a learning curve, but it’s rather intuitive.

Instead of comparing Windows Server 2012 to Windows 8, let’s compare it to Windows Client OS since, if you’re on this page, you’re most likely familiar with that already.

Additionally the OS is the same whether you purchase Windows Server 2012 Standard or Windows Server 2012 Datacenter. The only difference between the two is whether you only need to run up to two virtual machines (standard) or you need unlimited virtual machines (Datacenter).

Since the OS is the same, all the details below will fit into both the Windows Server 2012 Standard and Datacenter versions (i.e. there’s no Enterprise edition to mess everyone up like in the 2008 editions).

Windows Dedicated Hosting Licensing

Windows dedicated server hosting licensing has moved to a processor model. Microsoft’s logic behind this is as follows:

“Having a single-licensing model will make it easier for you to buy the right product for your needs and to compare the cost of alternatives (such as individual products, the CIS SKU outside of ECI, ECI and so on). Additionally, the new licensing model provides a single, familiar, and easy-to-track metric for all infrastructure products further reducing management overhead.”

For Windows Server 2012 Standard, if you have a two-processor server and you want to run on a total of 4 VMs, you simply purchase two Standard edition licenses and assign them to your server. For example:

With one Windows Server 2012 Datacenter license, however, you can run an unlimited number of virtual machines with that one license.
