Hyper-V WMI provider (V2)

Hyper-V

Purpose

Hyper-V provides a scalable, reliable, and highly available virtualized server computing environment. It enables one or more guest operating systems to run concurrently on a single physical computer. Key uses for virtual machine technology include the following:

  • Server consolidation
  • Consolidation of development and testing environments
  • Simplified disaster recovery
