This highly depends on your hypervisor of choice or the workload you are trying to run on the instances. Can you give more details on that matter?

From my experience (this is just a personal opinion), Windows 2012R2 Standard can run with 2GB RAM and 2 vCPUs well. On the other hand, if you have an Exchange Server deployed on that 2012R2, a minimum requirement would be 8GB RAM and 4vCPUs. For basic tasks, I usually set it to 3GB RAM and 2 vCPUs.

Thank you,
Adrian Vladu
