Server virtualization has become central to businesses of all shapes and sizes. By virtualizing their workloads, companies can control and cut costs while improving the flexibility and scalability of their IT systems.
There is a number server machine software available on the market but Microsoft has taken a leading role in the virtualization of servers, with HyperV, which was first introduced in 2008.
People can use HyperV to run multiple operating systems in parallel on a single physical server host.
What is HyperV?
HyperV, formerly known as Windows Server Virtualization, enables you to create and manage virtualized computing environments that is built into a Windows Server.
In HyperV, each virtual machine runs within an isolated partition. Each partition has access to its own RAM, disk, processor, network and other virtual resources.
