At Wiresoft you can find the Windows Server 2022 Datacenter 2-Core Package as used software - at a significantly lower price than corresponding new software - whereby it offers all typical Datacenter features regarding functionality, performance and security. Detailed information about the powerful features of Windows Server 2022 Datacenter as well as the Microsoft licensing terms with 2-Core Packages can be found in the following overview.
Windows Server 2022 Datacenter - for virtually unlimited virtualization
The Windows Server 2022 Datacenter edition takes virtualization capabilities - as well as data and application security - to a new level: in addition to many enhancements and additions to features already known from the previous version, it has the ability to create software-defined HCI (hyperconverged) infrastructure platforms, which offer many advantages in server and desktop virtualization, because they are not only easier to implement and manage, but also to scale, simplifying the deployment of even complex IT infrastructures.
What is the value proposition of Windows Server 2022 Datacenter?
Basically, Windows Server 2022 Edition Datacenter offers the maximum in virtualization capabilities - so it is particularly suitable for those companies where this plays an important role along with the associated higher IT workloads. In Datacenter Edition, the number of virtual machines and Hyper-V containers that can be run is unlimited, with a RAM limit of 24TB. For this, the following important features are also available with maximum functionality:
Advanced protection in the cloud with Shielded Virtual Machines
Shielded VMs (Virtual Machines) enable the creation of highly secured virtualization infrastructures. Virtual servers are thus secured in such a way that data and applications stored in a public cloud are reliably protected from unauthorized access or use. Existing VMs can also be converted to Shielded VMs and protected Linux VMs can also be created. Shielded VMs can be installed using Server Manager, Windows Admin Center or PowerShell.
Software Defined Networking
The Software-Defined Networking (SDN) feature in Windows Server 2022 enables the central configuration of both physical (such as routers, switches and gateways) and virtual network devices and elements (such as Hyper-V virtual switches, Hyper-V network virtualization and RAS gateways) as well as their dynamic management. The existing SDN-compliant devices can be used to achieve higher integration between the physical and virtual network, as the network layers are no longer tied to the network devices. In this regard, Windows Server 2022 Datacenter Edition provides the ability to peer and seamlessly connect two networks, as well as firewall monitoring.
With SDN, for example, it is possible to:
- Dynamically create, secure, and connect networks
- Define policies to control physical and virtual networks
- Scale network policies
- Accelerate deployment of workloads
- Minimize network security risks
- Encrypted Networks for secure encryption of virtual networks using Datagram Transport Layer Security (DTLS)
Software-Defined Storage (SDS) in Windows Server 2022 decouples storage hardware from storage software. This allows data storage to be managed, scaled and provisioned independently of the underlying storage hardware. It also allows the hardware to be easily replaced or upgraded without changing operations, which also contributes to cost efficiency.
In Windows Server 2022 Datacenter, the Storage Replica feature is available without limitation. It supports both synchronous and asynchronous replication of data, effectively preventing data loss at the file system level. While synchronous replication mirrors data at physical locations with fail-safe volumes, asynchronous replication between locations uses network links with higher latency. Disaster Preparedness and Recovery (DR) also minimizes the risk of downtime.
Storage Spaces Direct (S2D)
Storage Spaces Direct combines local server data stores into a virtual cluster. Its nodes can connect different physical data carriers or data carrier systems, and communication between them takes place via the SMB protocol. S2D thus offers increased fail-safety, so that in the case of a larger number, several cluster nodes can also fail without the cluster itself being affected.
In addition to making it easy to deploy and manage software-defined storage (SDS) systems, Storage Spaces Direct also enables the creation of scalable, highly available storage systems, where server storage can be used independently of its hardware and thus more efficiently.
Other new features of Windows Server 2022
In addition to these exclusive features of Windows Server 2022 Datacenter Edition, the following key features are also available to enterprises:
Comprehensive analytics with System Insights
Supported by a machine learning model, the predictive analytics feature System Insights is available in Windows Server 2022 . This provides insights into the operation of locally deployed servers by analyzing their performance indicators and events to make accurate predictions that can help reduce the effort involved in reactive administration of Windows Server instances, thereby helping to reduce operational costs.
Support for Kubernetes and Linux
In Windows Server 2022, Kubernetes and Linux are now better supported: Linux and Windows containers managed with Kubernetes can now be used in parallel as a result. New functions such as container networking are also available for Kubernetes, and individual images have also been improved here.
Higher protection of data and network with Azure Services
The reliable protection not only of data, but also of network infrastructures is becoming increasingly important in companies. Windows Server 2022 offers powerful functions such as Windows Defender Advanced Threat Protection (ATP) with Exploit Guard and Domain Controller.
Here, the hybrid features available in Windows Server 2022 enable improved protection of on-premises Active Directory as well as easier use of Microsoft Azure services - so that closer collaboration between Windows Server and Azure services enables easy synchronization of data or data backup, among others with:
- Azure Backup
- Azure Site Recovery
- Azure Update Management
- Azure AD Banned Passwords
- Azure AD Password Protection and
- Azure Network Adapter
This connects an on-premises server to a virtual Azure network in the Azure Cloud. The Storage Migration Assistant also facilitates server migration including data to the cloud, where Azure File Sync can act as the storage location.

Licensing with Windows Server 2022 Datacenter 2-Core
When licensing servers with Windows Server 2022 Datacenter , the Microsoft licensing regulations must also be observed for used software, which are based on the number of cores as a benchmark for the calculation. The following terms and conditions apply:
Microsoft General License Terms for Windows Server 2022 Datacenter
Microsoft server software such as Windows Server 2022 Datacenter is always initially licensed based on the physical hardware. In addition to the number of physical core processors, the number of virtual servers is also counted. A server license always covers two physical processor cores. Microsoft's licensing terms are based on a minimum number of 8 cores per processor - regardless of whether the existing hardware has fewer than 8 cores. In addition, there is a minimum of 2 processors per physical server = 16 cores.
If a Windows Server in a company has a higher number of cores than 16, then these can also be flexibly licensed with 2-Core Packages for Windows Server 2022 Datacenter.
Other licensing requirements for Windows Server 2022 Datacenter
In a Hyper-V environment, all processors are licensed that correspond to the physical processor cores. Especially the edition Windows Server Datacenter entitles to run an unlimited number of Hyper-V instances. The prerequisite for this is, as already stated, that all corresponding processor cores of the server have already been licensed.
No license is required for Linux instances in the Datacenter Edition.
In addition to the Windows Server license, all clients - users as well as end devices - that access Windows Server 2022 must also be equipped with a client access license (CAL). User and Device CALs are also available from Wiresoft at low prices.
