Microsoft Hyper-V

Hyper-V is Microsoft’s hardware virtualization product. It lets you create and run a software version of a computer, called a virtual machine. Each virtual machine acts like a complete computer, running an operating system and programs. When you need computing resources, virtual machines give you more flexibility, help save time and money, and are a more efficient way to use hardware than just running one operating system on physical hardware.

Hyper-V runs each virtual machine in its own isolated space, which means you can run more than one virtual machine on the same hardware at the same time. You might want to do this to avoid problems such as a crash affecting the other workloads, or to give different people, groups or services access to different systems.

Microsoft Hyper-V Features

A Hyper-V virtual machine includes the same basic parts as a physical computer, such as memory, processor, storage, and networking. All these parts have features and options that you can configure different ways to meet different needs.

For disaster recovery, Hyper-V Replica creates copies of virtual machines, intended to be stored in another physical location, so you can restore the virtual machine from the copy. For backup, Hyper-V offers two types.

Each supported guest operating system has a customized set of services and drivers, called integration services, that make it easier to use the operating system in a Hyper-V virtual machine.

Features such as live migration, storage migration, and import/export make it easier to move or distribute a virtual machine.

Hyper-V includes Virtual Machine Connection, a remote connection tool for use with both Windows and Linux. Unlike Remote Desktop, this tool gives you console access, so you can see what’s happening in the guest even when the operating system isn’t booted yet.

Secure boot and shielded virtual machines help protect against malware and other unauthorized access to a virtual machine and its data.

Some ways Hyper-V can help you

Provide more flexible, on-demand IT services by moving to or expanding your use of shared resources and adjust utilization as demand changes.

Consolidate servers and workloads onto fewer, more powerful physical computers to use less power and physical space.

Minimize the impact of both scheduled and unscheduled downtime of your workloads.

Reproduce different computing environments without having to buy or maintain all the hardware you’d need if you only used physical systems.

Use a centralized desktop strategy with VDI can help you increase business agility and data security, as well as simplify regulatory compliance and manage desktop operating systems and applications.
