Windows 8 Client Hyper-V Survival Guide

Hyper-V is all new in Microsoft Windows Server 2012.  As a bonus, Hyper-V is also available in the desktop client OS – Windows 8.  Microsoft has published a "survival guide" to Client Hyper-V that details hardware and software requirements, management, and scalability.

Client Hyper-V let you use both Hyper-V virtualization and wireless network adapters and sleep states on your desktop machine. For example, if you are running Client Hyper-V on a laptop and close the lid, the VMs that are running will be put into a saved state, and can be resumed when the machine wakes.

There a few features included in Windows Server 8 Hyper-V that are not included in Client Hyper-V. These include:

  • Remote FX capability to virtualize GPUs (software GPU in RDP 8)
  • Live VM migration
  • Hyper-V Replica
  • SR-IOV networking
  • Synthetic fibre channel
