What is Microsoft Hyper-V?
Microsoft Hyper V, also known as Windows Server Virtualization, is a proprietary virtualization system developed by Microsoft. It's based on a 64-bit hypervisor and was first introduced with Windows Server 2008.
Hyper-V allows for the creation of a hypervisor that can run multiple virtual machines on the same server. The resources of the server are shared according to the resource requirements ofthe different virtual machines. This allows for efficient use of hardware resources and provides a high degree of flexibility and scalability.
