Reviewing Hyper-V

Windows Server 2008 Hyper-V and Microsoft Hyper-V Server 2008 are both hypervisor-based virtualization platforms. Hyper-V is multithreaded and concurrently runs one or more virtual machines (workloads), each in its own thread of execution. Each virtual machine presents a set of virtualized or synthetic devices to the guest operating system and applications that abstracts the underlying physical hardware, providing workload portability between dissimilar physical servers running Hyper-V.
