7. Hyper-V Virtualization

Chapter 7. Hyper-V Virtualization

Virtualization is rapidly becoming the essential foundation for today’s datacenter environments. Both private and public cloud computing are based on virtualization technologies, as is the emerging virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) paradigm that can provide benefits beyond those provided by traditional desktop computing for certain scenarios. Being able to implement and manage a virtualization infrastructure, therefore, is becoming a key job role for datacenter administrators.

The Hyper-V server role of Microsoft Windows Server provides an out-of-the-box platform for virtualizing both server workloads and virtual desktops. The numerous enhancements and improvements made to Hyper-V in Windows Server 2012 now make it easier than ever to deploy, configure, manage, and maintain an organization’s virtualized computing infrastructure. This chapter demonstrates how to deploy and manage virtualization hosts and virtual machines using both the GUI administration tools and Windows PowerShell cmdlets included in Windows Server 2012.
