    Hi, I’m new to Windows servers, SQL Server, Hyper-V Replica. What I want to do, for one of my customers, is the following.

    Buy a Windows Server 2012 R2 Essentials Licence. The R2 license is suppose to let me do this : Install Hyper-V on the physical machine. And run Windows Server 2012 R2 Essentials as a Virtual Machine. I want to install Hyper-V Free on a second machine to serve as a Replica server. Every 5 minutes the main VM will be replicated using Hyper-V Replica.

    In the document “SQL Server 2014 Licensing Datasheet ” (goo.gl/c1JnXY), Microsoft says : “Beginning with SQL Server 2014, each active server licensed with SA coverage allows the installation of a single passive server used for fail-over support.” My question is : does this apply to Hyper-V Replica? I mean the Replica and the main VM will never run at the same time. The replica will only be started when there will be a problem with the main VM.

    So do I need Software Assurance for SQL Server 2014 if I want to use Hyper-V Replica as a disaster recovery option?
