Can you tell me the benefits between using Windows 2003 Standard or Enterprise with Microsoft Virtual Server? Would I be able to run more virtual machines with one as opposed to the other?
If you're talking about hosting Virtual Server on either Windows 2003 Standard or Windows 2003 Enterprise, the big difference here is how much memory either of them can address. That, in turn, translates to how many virtual machines you can host at once. Windows 2003 Standard R2 supports 4GB max; Enterprise R2 and Windows 2003 Datacenter Edition support up to 64GB.
