I am trying to calculate my costs for Microsoft Azure. Imagine I take a Standart D4 Type machine running Windows 2012 and would like to install my own SQL Server 2012. Are these 8 cores 1 quad core with hyperthreading enabled, or are these 2 Quad cores without hyperthreading ? I mean do I have to pay only 1 or 2 core license for SQL 2012 Standart Edition?
I could't fint the answer online. Neither I have the chance to create the machine now and check the socket number. Can anyone help me out?
