The Microsoft Hyper-V (Microsoft Hypervisor-Based Server Virtualization Technology) offers a trustworthy virtualization platform for businesses that involve a powerful platform without smashing their IT budget. Microsoft Hyper-V, the company’s latest version of server virtualization services, was officially released with Windows Server 2008. Formerly known under codename Viridian and as Windows Server Virtualization, Hyper-V is a hypervisor-based virtualization system for x64 systems that allow for the virtualization of guest operating systems. A hypervisor, also called virtual machine monitor, is a virtualization platform that allows multiple operating systems to run on a host computer at the same time.

Let’s imagine an IT department for any size organization. You come down one morning before everyone else (a common practice in our field) and see that one of your servers has crashed. You will start trying to fix the error; you may find that you need to rebuild the machine.

Now let’s imagine the same situation but all of your servers are running Hyper-V. When you come in and see your crash, you know you can relax. All you need to do is move the Hyper-V virtual machine to another machine running Hyper-V and you are back up and running. This is what Hyper-V can do for you. Hyper-V is a role-based feature that enables an organization to have multiple virtual machines (using multiple operating systems) on a single Windows Server 2008 machine. Let’s take a look at some of the key benefits of using Hyper-V technology.

Hyper-V is a virtualization platform that gives you the ability to manage all of your physical and virtual resources from a single set of integrated management utilities.
