Hyper-V is Microsoft’s primary server and desktop virtualisation platform. A market leader, Microsoft is constantly adding new features and improving scalability to improve its competitiveness.
WHY CHOOSE HYPER-V?
Almost all of our customers already use Windows Server for their workloads. Installing Hyper-V to provide virtualisation services provides a single vendor solution across all server roles. This means easier and cheaper support, and a training model for the business.
What’s more, when you buy Windows Server you’ll also receive Hyper-V for free, with no additional licensing costs.
BENEFITS OF HYPER-V
Hyper-V underpins Microsoft Azure, one of the world’s largest cloud environments. Using Hyper-V as your hypervisor means you can:
- Migrate on-premise virtual machines to Azure - and migrate them back if necessary
- Run multiple operating systems - including Windows, Linux, and others, in parallel, on a single server without having to pay additional license fees
- Easily add additional services - such as replication and backup of virtual machines to Azure
