The table below describes the psychical memory limits supported by each Windows version. We want to make sure our clients are aware of these limits as we begin to offer increased amounts of RAM across our server platforms. :
Version 32bit Limit 64bit Limit Windows 2008 Standard R2 n/a 32GB Windows 2008 Enterprise R2 n/a 2TB Windows 2008 Datacenter R2 n/a 2TB Windows 2012 Standard n/a 4TB Windows 2012 Enterprise n/a n/a Windows 2012 Datacenter n/a 4TB Windows 2016 Standard n/a 24TB Windows 2016 Datacenter n/a 24TB Windows 2019 Standard n/a 24TB Windows 2019 Datacenter n/a 24TB
We recommend that servers using more than 4GB of RAM install a 64bit operating system over a 32bit operating system with PAE support.
