This solution is mostly being used to deliver flexibility, high availability, and redundancy to accommodate production demand on an as-needed basis. The main driver is consolidation, which is then complemented with the above-mentioned items. Hyper-V is a cost-effective platform that helped many companies I've been involved with to reduce data center administration and licensing costs drastically. Once the platform is in place, it helps to control resources more accurately and on a consumption basis. By using the VMM (Virtual Machine Manager) you have full control of the fabric, workloads, templates and many more resources. Running Hyper-V Core also increases security and reduces update time-frames, which also helped us to increase our uptime and overall service delivery expectations.
We can illustrate all of the infrastructure very easily.
I use this solution for some of my virtual machines.
It is a consolidation of Microsoft services that we have on premise.
We use this solution to host our corporate infrastructure servers.
I primarily use it for server virtualization and protection services.
I build servers using this solution.
Our primary use case of this solution is for implementing the private cloud over the system center.
The features I find most valuable are utilizing the hardware so there is multiple applications running on one hypervisor. This actually saves money for the user.
We use the Hypervisor and manage the VMs. We then get a 360 degree view of the infrastructure, hardware, networking, storage, VMs, and more.
It's possible to manage virtual servers on the same physical platform and so I can use hardware sources more efficiently.
My primary use case of this solution is to increase memory for the virtual machine which can be easily done on Hyper-V.
The reason we use this solution is because we can do a lot more with rate configurations, and large span networks. It's a lot easier doing that versus with some of the KVM based hypervisors.
We primarily use this solution as a hypervisor.
We are currently using this solution for Exchange, as a demo controller and an antivirus, as well. We have lots of servers on our Hyper-V.
My primary use case is for virtualization of all solutions from physical servers into other solutions for ease of management.
We use this product primarily for virtualization.
Our primary use of this solution is for production of our office business needs.
We run the majority of our production servers from our Hyper-V 2012 R2 Cluster.
