What is Hyper-V
Hyper-V is free virtualization software from Microsoft. It is shipped in all versions of Windows after Windows 8 and Windows Server 2012. It is available as an update on Windows Server 2008. It works by creating a hypervisor between the hardware and the operating system and virtual machine. In order for the operating system or virtual machine to access that hardware it must go through the hypervisor. This creates a standard method for accessing hardware. There is other virtualization software on the market. Basic ones can be downloaded and used for free.
Virtual machine software also comes with commercial management software. This software provides additional features for virtual machines like the ability to move the virtual machine between different servers. Also features like backing up the virtual machines and managing the load of the virtual machines can be performed. This is how companies like Microsoft make money when they give their virtual machine software away for free.
