Hyper-V is a virtualization platform that can help transform your data management system and cloud computing. It is available as either a stand-alone server product or an integrated feature of Windows Server.

With its Hyper-V virtualization role, Windows Server 2012 can help increase your server scalability and performance and provide better connectivity to cloud services.

Whether you are simply virtualizing your workloads or building a private cloud, new technologies available as a virtualization platform in Windows Server 2012 Hyper-V can provide a feature-rich solution.

Before you attempt to install the Hyper-V role, make sure that you have the following:

A computer running Windows Server 2012.

Enough memory to run all the virtual machines that you plan to run at the same time.

Software for the virtual machine. For example, to test a particular workload, you will need installation media for the operating system and the workload. If you want to test certain features of Windows Server 2012, you can use the same installation media in the virtual machine that you used to install Windows Server 2012 on the physical computer.

Hardware Requirements:

Hyper-V requires a 64-bit processor that includes the following:

Hardware-assisted virtualization. This is available in processors that include a virtualization option—specifically processors with Intel Virtualization Technology (Intel VT) or AMD Virtualization (AMD-V) technology.

Hardware-enforced Data Execution Prevention (DEP) must be available and enabled. Specifically, you must enable Intel XD bit (execute disable bit) or AMD NX bit (no execute bit).
