Each SQL Server instance requires a separate license. If there are 3 SQL Server instances, 3 licenses are required. It’s irrelevant whether these 3 SQL Server instances are on a single physical machine or on separate machines. The number of licenses is not dependent on virtualization or the number of users.
Each user requires a separate license (regardless of the number of computers used (within reason)). If a single user works on multiple machines (a workstation at work, laptop, home computer, etc.), additional licenses aren’t required.
We allow our users to user the software on up to three machines. These can be changed over time if required.
For per instance tools, the number of licenses is equal to the number of instances you will be using the tool on.
For per instance tools, no additional license is needed if you use the tool GUI on another machine to connect to an instance that's already licensed.
