We've got a big Hyper-V host machine running Windows Server 2008 Datacenter. This hosts all of our VMs.
I'm about to create a bunch of Server 2008 VMs for various projects and wanted to know what edition I should install. Our license allows us to use whatever we want so cost is not an issue.
Are there disadvantages to using Enterprise or Data Center?
We don't really need anything beyond Standard Edition today but if using enterprise or data center doesn't hurt anything (and in our case doesn't cost any more), I might as well use those, right?
