Hyper V has become an essential tool of network administrators by allowing them to virtualize servers and computers. This allows companies to save money by being able to run multiple operating systems on one physical computer as well as isolate each operating system from each other. Cost savings come from not having to buy additional hardware to run different Operating Systems. As much as private companies have moved to using Hyper V, colleges have probably become the biggest users of them. Offering virtual servers and computers to students and staff alike is a great cost reduction.
Some basic system requirements to run Hyper V include a x64 based processor, hardware assisted virtualization, and hardware data execution prevention (DEP). The most current version of Hyper V is available on Windows Server 2012, 2008 R2, and 2008 only. A stand-alone version is free and is available on the core installation of WS products and is only available using command line interface.
Installation is pretty easy by using the wizards available in WS 2008. Here are the steps to setup Hyper V on your server: 1. Path: Start/Server Manager/Roles Summary area/Add Roles 2. On the Server Roles page click Hyper V
3. Select the network adapters you want to make network connections available to virtual machines. 4. Confirm your selections and click Install.
5. Close the wizard and just that quickly you have created a virtual server or cloud server.
