What is Hyper-V used for?

Virtualization technologies, or platforms, are more commonly referred to as hypervisors. There are several different hypervisors on the market — Hyper-V is Microsoft’s version; some others that are well-known are VMWare’s ESXi and VSphere, XenServer (Citrix), KVM Open Source Hypervisor and RHEV (Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization). The lion’s share of the virtualization market is currently divided between VSphere and Hyper V.

So what is Hyper-V used for? Like all hypervisors, Hyper-V gives you a way to create and manage virtual machines to help you:

• Develop and test applications, operating systems and upgrades. The ease of creating VMs in Hyper-V, and the fact that the VMs can remain separate from the rest of your system, makes them the perfect environment for testing. You can also create a virtual lab to experiment with different operating systems, and see how your application performs on each, without using more than one computer. When you’re done experimenting, you can simply delete the VM.

• Easily scale your IT infrastructure to accommodate larger workloads. Virtual machines are easier to manage than physical hardware, and they don’t come with the hefty acquisition cost. You can also maximize your server use by allocating its resources more intelligently than you can with physical hardware alone.

• Save or migrate data from a legacy system. Many companies continue to maintain servers that support outdated hardware or software solutions because they want to preserve data. Migrating your business applications, and their contents, to a virtual machine frees up resources.

• Improve business continuity. The virtual machines you create can reduce server downtime, because running workloads can be easily backed up and moved to another server without interruption. They can also be configured to automatically restart VMs affected by server failures.

Once you’ve created your virtual machines, you’ll also need to manage them. Hyper-V’s suite of management tools makes it possible to:

• Create and delete virtual machines.

• Monitor uptime, bandwidth utilization, CPU and RAM consumption.

• Perform backups.

• Allocate resources.

Having the right management tool is key to your success with virtualization.
