1. On the Telenet Dynamic Cloud you decide how many virtual servers you create. One virtual CPU is regarded as one core.
2. Microsoft’s SQL Server licences are offered in packs of two cores (or two virtual CPUs).
3. For this reason the prices posted in the MyAccount control panels are always per set of two virtual CPUs. In other words, it is not possible to licence an odd number of vCPUs.
4. Moreover, Microsoft requires that SQL Server customers licence a minimum of four virtual CPUs (see screenshot).
5. In practical terms, this means that the following amounts will be invoiced for the (paid) SQL Server licences:
o You have activated 1, 2, 3 or 4 virtual CPUs: posted price x2 (min. 4)
o You have activated 6 virtual CPUs: posted price x3
o You have activated 8 virtual CPUs: posted price x4
