Each Microsoft SQL Server 2016 2 Core License provides licensing for 2 server cores, and requires a MINIMUM of 4 Cores to be licensed. Being compliant with Microsoft requires at least 2 licenses be purchased, even if your machine has less than 4 cores.
This 2-Core, OLP License for Microsoft SQL Server 2016 Standard comes equipped with unlimited users and can be easily enhanced with increased speed of memory and storage. This 2-core version is more cost effective for systems with more than 31 users on a 4-core machine (and 62 users on an 8-core machine, and so forth). Note that this Microsoft SQL Server 2016 2-Core OLP License only provides licensing for 2 server cores and requires a minimum of 4 Cores to be licensed. Thus, for compliance Microsoft licensing, at least 2 licenses be purchased, even for machines with fewer than 4 cores.

Inherited an older database and this is exactly what we needed
Amazing support and sales team. Were able to assist me between the cal and core options
Installed and works as we wanted it to. Fresh installation
We prefer 2016 over any other release. The most stable version of SQL to date.
