I run matlab 2017a. statistics toolbox and parallel toolbox.
I got a great deal on a ProLiant DL580 gen 7 == 4 cpu's with 10 cores each and 256 gig ram. My first idea was to put VMware on it and make a virtual machine that my win 7 pro 64 could install on, but I got too stuck so I gave up and installed windows server 2012 sp2. It's clear that some functionality (direct matrix manipulation, for example) works beautifully with a 77 worker parpool. Other things work less well.
My question is whether there it's reasonable or possible to get windows 2012 server to run matlab WELL or should I revert to my virtual machine (I'd set it as 2 sockets with 20 cores per) and run off windows 7 pro?
I also can imagine that some settings in the server environment could be messing with me.

FWIW, the two socket restriction was raised to four sockets for Windows 10 Professional. Microsoft's announcement is here.
