My shop has SQL Server 2016, 2017, 2019 SE, EE and DE.
We support a lot of 3rd party solutions.
This week, our CIO told us to cut the SQL Server VM (Virtual Machine) CPU to 1 because he wants to save the licensing cost and wants to move to Azure with reduced licenses.
I don't find anything on MicroSoft website on what is the minimum CPU required to run 1 SQL Default Instance per VM.
Can you help to shed some lights? I am so worried that trimming CPU to 1 will cause application/SQL performance issues but CIO wants us to do it regardless.
Please kindly help!
