Windows Server Standard
Windows Standard is designed for small or medium businesses that need either more than 20 users or more than one server to isolate server roles, such as domain controller and print servers, or applications, such as a medical billing system.In order to properly license Standard, you have to buy the operating system and then buy the number of CALs for the number of users (or devices) you have.You are also allowed two virtual machines per license purchased.
For most small and medium businesses, we generally recommend two or three virtual machines, which requires one or two Server Standard licenses.This allows us to have a dedicated virtual machine for the domain controller and then a separate file server and/or application server.
Windows Server Datacenter
Server Datacenter is designed, primarily, for large businesses that want to put lots of virtual machines on a single physical server.Datacenter, like Standard, requires CALs, but it allows for an unlimited number of virtual machines to exist on a properly-licensed physical machine.
The cost of a Datacenter license is around 7 times the cost of a Standard license, so if you are implementing less than 14 VMs on a physical server it is generally more cost effective to get Standard.
