The Hyper-V technology provides an environment that you can use to create and manage virtual machines and their resources. Each virtual machine is an isolated, virtualized computer system that is capable of running its own operating system. This allows you to run multiple operating systems at the same time on the same physical computer.

The type of virtualization offered by Hyper-V is known as hardware virtualization. Hyper-V is a hypervisor-based hardware virtualization.

Hyper-V Manager provides management access to your virtualization platform.

Hyper-V includes many new features that make it easier to virtualize your workloads. For more information about these new features, see:
