Chapter 4: Virtualization Best Practices

Chapter 4: Virtualization Best Practices

After you put Hyper-V into use in an environment, the next logical step is to look at performance and how you can use Hyper-V more efficiently. Tuning a Hyper-V host isn’t much different from tuning any other high-performance server. In addition to checking the host’s performance, though, it’s critical to tune the virtual machines being used.

We’ll cover best practices from two points of view: that of the host, including processor, memory, networking, and storage; and that of the virtual machine, including integration services, using the Sysprep tool, and patching virtual machines.

In this chapter, we’ll cover the following topics:

  • Host best practices
  • Virtual machine best practices
