Hyper-V, also known as hypervisor, is a form of virtualization technology. Hyper-V is a computer software, firmware or hardware that creates and runs virtual machines. A computer that has Hyper-V is a host computer, and can allow guest operating systems access to virtual operating platforms. Hyper-V allows physical to virtual migrations, private clouds, public clouds, and hybrid clouds!
So whats the big deal? Why do you care about Hyper-V technology?
Lets break it down!
Hyper-V can consolidate and run applications onto fewer physical servers.
Virtualization enables quick provisioning and deployment, enhances workload balance and enhances resiliency and availability, due to being able to dynamically move virtual machines from one server to another.
Virtual machines work swimmingly with managed cloud server technology.
Companies can capitalize on the functionality of Hyper-V technology. I.T. companies (like us!) can become more efficient in their efforts, which helps us, help you!
The cloud infrastructure services along with virtual machine technology allows for the optimization of capacity needs. Allocating resources as necessary to the needs in the given moment, rather than a separation of resources, that are on hold for other specific services not currently in need.
If workloads vary greatly within your company, virtualization allows an easier management of migration and balance. When expecting a large increase in capacity needs, you just need to contact your cloud provider to allow a higher capacity for the necessary time.
One of the best aspects of Hyper-V is that, if maintenance is required, there is no necessary downtime!
Of course, when it comes to security, Hyper-V has comprehensive security functions through active directory.
Hyper-V is a strong tool to help manage your network options and connect multiple OS to a single server. The advantages of Hyper-V are becoming more and more known and integrated into most all modern businesses, increasing functionality.
