Awesome – Building Windows 8: Hyper-V

Hyper-V 3.0

Microsoft today showed a new video in their Building Windows 8 video series. Today Microsoft showed the next release of Hyper-V which is integrated in Windows 8 as a Windows Feature.

Hyper-V 3.0 offers some really cool new features, a lot is not official but I am sure Microsoft has some great features ready.

  • Support for 32 vCPUs per VM (Hyper-V R2 supports 4)
  • Support for 512GB vRAM per VM (Hyper-V R2 supports 64GB)
  • New VHDX file format which supports a maximum of 16TB (VHDs in Hyper-V R2 support only 2TB disks)
  • Support for WiFi Network adapters
  • Windows 8 Client includes Hyper-V 3.0
  • Live Storage Migration (LUN to LUN, Disk to Disk, Disk to USB Storage)
