Microsoft Hyper-V is a popular hypervisor (virtual machine manager) strategically suited for those primarily using Windows Servers. Those who do so may already be comfortable with its interface and features, like Windows Active Directory, which Hyper-V uses for access control in certain circumstances.
It also comes loaded with many features that enable easy maintenance, security, backups and live migration.
Hyper-V can also be deployed as a “bare-metal” hypervisor, meaning it does not run on an underlying operating system. Accessing hardware resources provide better performance, scalability and stability.
