    Hyper-V what is it, how to setup, is it free?



    Hi, here im sharing my small research regarding hyper-v and Windows VPS reselling.

    Microsoft Hyper-V Server k dispozici zdarma.
    Integrated part of Windows Server 2008 R2 and Windows Server 2012.
    "vmware server" can be alternative to hyper-v but, it has almost no functions.

    Windows Server 2008 R2 Enterprise VS Datacenter R2

    Enterprise can run 1 physical Windows OS instance and 4 virtual OS instances. Datacenter can run 1 physical and unlimited virtual instances. Datacenter is licensed also per cpu on which is used.

    Windows Server Pricing and license types table can be found there:
    Microsoft | Windows Server 2012 | Pricing | Licensing | Buy
    Datacenter: $4,809, Standard: $882

    Which OS should be supported at Hyper-V?
    Microsoft Windows Server 2003+
    Microsoft XP Pro SP2
    CentOS 6+
    FreeBSD 8.2

    Official hyper-V page at technet: Microsoft Hyper-V - TechNet Blog CZ/SK - Site Home - TechNet Blogs

    Converting VMWare - Hyper-V virtual disk using "Microsoft System Center Virtual Machine Manager (VMM)"

    VMware uses Virtual Machine Disk Format — with the extension .vmdk
    Microsoft uses Virtual Hard Disk Format — with the extension .vhd

    Is this useful / helpfull? Yes | No
    Heya,

    Nice to be invited to this forum site. Hope I can be of help to everyone . Anyways, Hyper-V is cool when you're planning to put up your VM farm. But if you want an open source totally free , KVM from RHEL and CentOS is also a very good alternative. Xen is also one of the best player in the hypervisor arena. Both are open source and has an optimum performance and well maintained.

    HTH.
