I could test some features in the new version of Hyper-V which comes with the Windows Server 8 Developer Preview. I did a little overview about the a lot of new features in the new Hyper-V Version: Hyper-V: “Version 3 kills them all”. In this post I will write something about some new things in Hyper-V Dynamic Memory.
Windows Server 8 Developer Preview Hyper-V Memory Settings:
- New maximum memory of a Virtual Machine is 512GB
- You can now change the Dynamic Memory Settings during the VM is running. You don’t need to reboot.
- You have now three values you can use, Startup RAM, Minimum RAM, Maximum RAM. In Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1 you could only setup Startup and Maximum RAM.
- You can now active Dynamic Memory during the creation of the new Virtual Machine
