Hyper V

Earlier known as Windows Server Virtualization, Microsoft Hyper-V is a native hypervisor that can build virtual machines on x86-64 systems running Windows. Hyper-V is available from Windows 8 version and is a succession of Windows Virtual PC. Any server that runs Hyper-V can be configured with one or more networks easily. The first release of Hyper-V took place along with Windows Server on 1st October 2008. It is available free of cost for all Windows Server and also on certain Client Operating Systems. It comprises of Windows Server 2008 Server core and Hyper-V role. Remote access using Hyper-V is done using Remote Desktop Connection.This course will provide you with skills and knowledge necessary to design and implement Microsoft Server Virtualization solutions using System Center and Hyper-V.

Key Benefits

As Hyper-V is included in the latest versions of Windows, a lot of money is saved on licensing. Also, users don’t need to learn Linux to use it, as it is Windows-based. Hyper-V is very flexible, providing a lot of relief to its users. It is extremely convenient to migrate running VMs from one host to another LIVE using Hyper-V. With hyper-V, it is much easier to manage the load, as new servers can be quickly added in a matter of a few minutes. It is possible to perform Cluster- maintenance using Hyper-V, without any downtime to the end users. Disaster recovery has become more effective with Hyper-V with robust back-up facilities. With Hyper-V, now even small enterprises can afford replication of servers across WAN or a secured VPN.
