How many cores does a server need?
Microsoft recommends using one core per virtual machine. Depending on the application running, we have experienced the need to run up to two cores per virtual machine (e.g. in the case of remote desktop services for a SQL-based ERP system).
Are cores and CPUs the same?
The main difference between CPU and Core is that the CPU is an electronic circuit inside the computer that carries out instruction to perform arithmetic, logical, control and input/output operations while the core is an execution unit inside the CPU that receives and executes instructions.
