Hyper-V is Microsoft’s hypervisor that allows multiple operating systems to be run on a single server. Beginning with Windows Server 2008, Microsoft introduced Hyper-V as a cost effective solution to fully utilize system resources across multiple virtual environments while reducing infrastructure requirements.
Windows Hyper-V hosting allows for the virtualization of multiple operating systems including running Windows and Linux on the same server. Both operating systems can be managed from a central location which does not sacrifice security or performance.
Scenarios for running Windows Hyper-V include unmanaged dedicated servers as a host with one or more guests, authenticated virtual dedicated servers, Shared Hosting Configurations, Running Desktop systems as Hyper-V guests and using end-customer licenses on the guest. All versions of SQL Server 2008 also are commonly setup on a Microsoft Server 2008 with Hyper-V.
