What is Hyper-V VPS?

Hyper-V is the hypervisor based technology and a VPS is a virtual private server which is based on virtualized platform. It provides true hardware virtualization and heavy isolation from other virtual machines on the physical server. With Microsoft Hyper-V you can now have a fully virtualized instance of the Windows 2008 Operating System with full IIS7 and .NET support. Virtual machine technology enables multiple operating systems to run concurrently on a single machine. In particular, Hyper-V, a key feature of Windows Server 2008, enables one or more operating systems to run simultaneously on the same physical system.

Hyper-V has made its mark in the industry since it came into existence as a fact that it is a  Microsoft’s product as well as based on the virtual atmosphere as a hypervisor technology. A VPS or a Virtual Private Server can be said as the virtual machine for use exclusively by an individual customer of the service. Each virtual server can run its own full-fledged operating system and can be independently rebooted.  A Hyper-V VPS provides customers an ideal platform for key virtualization scenarios, such as production server consolidation, business continuity management, software test and development, and development of a dynamic datacenter.

Hyper-V VPS is a cost effective solution to the people who doesn’t want to invest into the dedicated servers. As a matter of fact that hypervisor technology provides more redundancy and is easy to deal with the functions available. With Hyper-V, the Microsoft hypervisor-based server virtualization technology, plus flexible licensing policies, it’s now easier than ever to take advantage of the cost savings of virtualization through Windows Server 2008 R2. This enables you to make the best use of your server hardware investments by consolidating multiple server roles as separate virtual machines (VMs) running on a single physical machine and also efficiently run multiple different operating systems—Windows, Linux, and others—in parallel, on a single server, and fully leverage the power of x64 computing.
