How to find your Microsoft product key
To find your 25-character key, you need to remove the silver scratch-off panel on the Certificate of Authenticity which is supplied with your product. This is easily done with a coin or fingernail. Don't press too hard or you could damage the key making it unreadable.
Remember, to avoid damaging your product key:
Don't use any other tool apart from a coin. You can also use your fingernail
Don't apply too much pressure
Don't try to peel the scratch layer off
Windows Server 2012 R2 Standard is a flexible, powerful, and easy-to-use server solution. Whether your company is a small business or a large enterprise, Windows Server R2 2012 Standard can help you cloud optimize your business.
Windows Server 2012 R2 Standard enables you to blend your on-premises solutions with the cloud without having to re-engineer infrastructure, systems management, or applications. It offers customers scalable, dynamic, and multitenant-aware cloud infrastructure that helps users connect across-premises. As a result, IT can respond to business needs with greater agility and efficiency, and the mobile workforce is able to access personalized work environments from virtually anywhere.
Hyper-V 2.0 - included in the operating system and provides 16x improvement in the amount of vCPU and RAM assignable to virtual machines
Live Migration – move virtual machines between physical servers with no downtime or loss of data
Hyper-V Replica – replicate virtual machines to another server in another location every 30 seconds
With Windows Server 2012 R2, it's even easier to deploy and deliver virtual resources across devices. VDI technologies offer easy access to a rich, full-fidelity Windows environment running in the datacenter, from virtually any device. Through Hyper-V and Remote Desktop Services, Microsoft offers three flexible VDI deployment options in a single solution: Pooled Desktops, Personal Desktops, and Remote Desktop Sessions.
Each physical server requires at least one license
Each license covers two CPUs, thus a four CPU server would require two license (one base license and one additional license)
Each license assigned to a physical server grants the use of two Windows Server virtual machines on that physical server
Additionally, a Windows Server 2012 Client Access License (CAL) is required for each user or device that accesses the server

As usual, I am not answering any questions about licensing. That’s the job of your reseller or distributor, so ask them.
Microsoft released the updating licensing details for WS2012 R2 several weeks ago. Remember that once released, you will be buying WS2012 R2, even if you plan to downgrade to W2008 R2. In this post, I’m going to cover the licensing for “core” editions of Windows Server.
The Core Editions
There aren’t any huge changes to the “core” editions of Windows Server (Datacenter and Standard). As with WS2012, the two editions are identical technically, having the same scalability and features … except one.
Both the Standard and Datacenter edition cover a licensed server for 2 processors. Processors are CPUs or sockets. Cores are not processors. A server with 2 Intel Xeon E5 processors with 10 cores each has 2 processors. It requires one Window Server license. A server with 4 * 16 core AMD processors has 4 processors. It needs 2 Windows Server licenses.
This applies no matter what downgraded version you plan to install.
Do more with less?
The HPE and Microsoft partnership extends Windows Server 2012 features with the release of Windows Server 2012 R2. Combining the HP ProLiant Gen9 features with the advanced virtualization and scalability features of Windows Server 2012 R2 empowers IT users and provides flexible access to corporate resources while protecting corporate information.
Server Virtualization - Supports 64 TB virtual disk format with online resize capability and compression to accelerate live migration of VHD/VHDX files
Storage - Gives you the ability to transfer large scale file systems between multiple nodes within a cluster, and Windows Azure Hyper-V recovery manager ensures robust recovery using Hyper-V replica
Network - Introduces Software Defined networking via Hyper-V network virtualization and Hyper-V extensible switch, and enables SR-IOV capable devices to be directly accessed by the VMs
