Hyper-V Review

A virtualization solution with good support for legacy systems

What is our primary use case?

In our administration, we don't have new computers or new servers, but we want to optimize our scientific work. We're using it with two devices for scientific work and administration work.

What is most valuable?

Microsoft's a good name for legacy support and solutions.

What needs improvement?

We have our scientific network, and it's run off the university sever, and we need two servers to optimize our scientific work, such as the mathematics work. Then you have to work with Python and Java, and the Microsoft Windows desktop system isn't the best option for this kind of work. Use the Hyper-V as your basic layer, for binding and administration of the systems to the hardware. In the virtualization yo can combined the best of Linux, Unix and Microsoft Windows.

What other advice do I have?

On a scale from one to ten, I would give Microsoft an eight.
