Core Infrastructure Server Suite

The two editions of the Core Infrastructure Server Suite (CIS Suite), Standard and Datacenter, combine server-side licenses and SA (Software Assurance) for equivalent editions of Windows Server and System Center. The main benefit of the suite is more favorable pricing compared to purchasing the two components individually. The current version of CIS Suites are licensed Per-Core, but prior to the release of Windows Server 2016 and System Center 2016 in Oct. 2016, CIS Suites were licensed per (physical) server, with each CIS Suite license covering up to two physical processors in a server.
