7. Hyper-V > Summary

Summary

Hyper-V R3’s new capabilities center on easier, yet more robust, management of virtual environments. Live migration, live merge of snapshots, and Hyper-V replication are all ways to deploy VMs quickly for scalability, troubleshooting, or disaster recovery. Features such as resource metering make Server 2012 and Hyper-V attractive for hosted service providers.

Many of the steps in this chapter also apply to clustered VMs. You can perform everything covered here—including live migration and Hyper-V replication—with PowerShell.

As a system administrator, you must become familiar with virtualization. This chapter detailed the major new features in Hyper-V, but these are certainly not all of the new capabilities. In the next chapter, we’ll look at new networking capabilities in Server 2012 not only for physical networks, but for Hyper-V as well.
