The new *free* Windows Server Virtualization Calculator helps you forecast licencing costs for your virtualization initiative. Budget those bits!

The Calculator helps you estimate license costs in two ways:

  • you can enter the number of servers by processor (socket, not core) count with the average number of virtualized instances of Windows Server that will run on each server.
  • you can enter the processor (socket, not core) count and number of virtualized instances of Windows Server for each individual server.

The calculator is pre-populated with the US dollar Open agreement Estimated Retail Prices for Standard Edition, Enterprise Edition and Datacenter Edition, but you can also customize ith with your organization’s prices for more accurate estimates.
