I need to know the licensing method if i am planning to run 4 Node Window cluster on Virtual machine.
1) Physical Machine having Dual CPU with 12 core ( Intel Xeon E5).
2) Virtual Machine having 16 vcpu each .
So need to understand how many license i need to buy to create 4 node Vertias Cluster and which license type .
Quick help is appreciated.
You licence by core for the least amount.
So if you have 2 ESX servers and each has 24 cores, then if you run a 2-node cluster with each VM exposed to 16 cores then you pay for 2x16=32 as this is less than 2x24=48, but if you ran a 4-node cluster on the same 2 ESX servers, then you would licence for 2x24=48 as this is less than 4x16=64.
Did I get right on this,
IF I have two node cluster and each node has 4 physical CPU's and 8 cores each then shall I have to buy 32*4=128 licenses.
Or by node basis I wil have to buy?
Please help to understand it.
