I have a Windows Server 2012 R2 Standard guest in a virtual environment. My hypervisor (Virtualbox) supports hot-adding and hot-removing vCPU's, but it also says in the VirtualBox manual that "So far this applies only to Linux and Windows Server 2008 x64 Data Center Edition." Microsoft forums, as always, are no help.

Please Note: This is NOT a Virtualbox capability question, but a question of Windows Server 2012 R2 Standard Edition's capability.

I can find nothing from MS, but Virtualization blogs seem to agree -- Windows 2012 Standard, and Datacenter will allow hot-adding vCPUs.
