Hyper-V

Characteristics of the service

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

Hyper-V functionality is available on Windows Server and Windows 10.

Flexible approach

Make the most of the infrastructure

Hyper-V runs each virtual machine in its own isolated location, which means you can run more than one virtual machine on the same hardware at the same time. This can be done to avoid problems such as a failure affecting other services on the physical server or to give different people, groups, or services access to different systems.

Hyper-V helps you provision or extend your private cloud environment. It provides more flexible on-demand IT services, adjusting usage as demand changes. Hyper-V makes more efficient use of hardware. It allows you to consolidate servers and workloads on fewer, more powerful physical computers to consume less power and physical space. It minimizes the amount and timing of both scheduled and unscheduled virtual machine downtime. With Hyper-V, you can provision or extend a virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI). Using a centralized desktop strategy with VDI can help increase business flexibility and data security, as well as simplify compliance management and management of desktop operating systems and applications. It is possible to deploy Hyper-V and a remote desktop virtualization host on the same server to provide users with personal virtual desktops or virtual desktop pools. The virtual machine has the ability to automatically start up and shut down along with the server operating system.

A Hyper-V feature virtual machine contains the same basic parts as a physical computer, such as memory, CPU, storage, and networking. All of these parts have features and options that can be configured in different ways to meet different needs.

Characteristics

Environment optimization and data security
  • Disaster recovery and backup – In disaster recovery, the Hyper-V feature replica creates copies of VMs to be stored in another physical location so you can restore a VM from a copy,
  • Optimization – 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 on a Hyper-V feature virtual machine,
  • Portability – Features such as live migration, storage migration and import/export make it easy to move or distribute a VM,
  • Remote connectivity – Hyper-V includes a virtual machine connection, a remote connection utility for use with both Windows and Linux,
  • Security – Virtual machines with secure boot systems help protect against malware and other unauthorized access to the virtual machine and its data.
