Hyper-V

Hypervisor technology is software on which multiple virtual machines can run, with the hypervisor layer controlling the hardware and allocating resources to each VM operating system. HyperV is the virtualization platform that is included in Windows Server.

lient HyperV is the virtualization technology built into Windows 10 and Windows8.x. It is the same virtualization technology previously available only in WindowsServer. Client HyperV enables you to run more than one 32-bit or 64-bit x86 operating system at the same time on the same host computer.

The difference is that VMware offers Dynamic Memory support for any guest OS, while Hyperv has historically supported Dynamic Memory only for VMs that are running Windows.

Microsoft Hyper-V Server is a free product that delivers enterprise-class virtualization for your datacenter and hybrid cloud. Microsoft Hyper-V Server provides new and enhanced features that can help you deliver the scale and performance needs of your mission-critical workloads.

The Windows hypervisor technology in Microsoft Hyper-V Server is the same as what’s in the Microsoft Hyper-V role on Windows Server. It is a stand-alone product that contains only the Windows hypervisor, a Windows Server driver model, and virtualization components. It provides a simple and reliable virtualization solution to help you improve your server utilization and reduce costs.
