- We are about to buy and 4 node box with 8*16 core processors.
- On top we are going to utilize AHV
- Here we are going to run 2 or 3 Microsoft Operating system only
Now what version of microsoft license we need to buy?

You need to license the VM's itself, nothing to do with your Hypervisor.
Microsoft Windows Standard licenses allow you to run 2 VOSEs on 1 license, and you need at least 16 core licenses. So in regards to your VM's 2 or 3 (*16 core) Standard License
Microsoft Windows Datacenter licenses allow you to run unlimited VOSEs on 1 licenses, but you need to license ALL cores in your cluster (in this case 8*16 core)
Best is to always discuss with your sales rep for your licenses.
