Differences between Windows Server 2012 R2 standard and datacenter editions

Hi guys

I know about thre licensing difference of the standard and datacenter editions. My questions is there any techinical\functional difference.
The development team in my company says that the installation of our software is not supported on datacenter adition, but I want to see if their claim is based on something techinical.

Have a great day!

It's the same thing, the only difference is on virtualization rights.

Standard edition --> limited to 2 virtual instance
Datacenter edition --> unlimited virtual instance

As far as I know when you certify an app for windows server there wouldn't be differentiation between standard and datacenter.

Some comparisons here (2012 documentation is probably long gone)
