  1. Clarification on Hyper-V


    I see that Windows 10 Pro includes Hyper-V. If enabled, would this work on a client system much the same way as VMWare Player, VirtualBox, etc?

    I'm very familiar with both of those hypervisors, but have never used the Microsoft offering, and I'm just looking for confirmation.

    Thanks!

    :)

    Hyper-V on Windows Home Edition?

    In my "Services (Local)", the following are listed:

    Hyper-V Data Exchange Service

    Hyper-V Guest Service Interface

    Hyper-V Guest Shutdown Service

    Hyper-V Heartbeat Service

    Hyper-V Remote Desktop Virtualization Service

    Hyper-V Time Synchronization Service

    Hyper-V VM Session Service

    Hyper-V Volume Shadow Copy Requestor

    Since Hyper V isn't supposed to be on Windows 10 Home, I'm wondering what's going on and why it is in my Services. Are there any other services which would appear in Windows 10 Pro, Enterprise or Education that shouldn't appear in Windows 10 Home Services?

    Thanks!

    Clarification on Hyper-V

    As so often in computing and everything else, this is of course only a subjective, personal opinion: for me the Hyper-V is the the best available free hypervisor. It's my choice, I completely stopped using VirtualBox and VMware products when a free consumer version of Hyper-V was presented in first Windows 8 beta versions. Since that I have only used Hyper-V for all my virtualization needs.

    One think Hyper-V is missing is direct support of the host USB devices. At least for me this is not a big deal because I can use my Hyper-V virtual machines in enhanced mode (Windows 8 or later, CentOS and Red Hat Enterprise Linux guests), or with remote desktop connection (Windows 7 or older, other Linux guests).

    On the other side Hyper-V has a lot of features missing from the other free alternatives. One feature I like really much is it automatically suspends all running virtual machines when the host is hibernated or shut down, and resumes them without any data loss or other issues when the host wakes up or is restarted. Checkpoints is another feature I find extremely useful.

    I recommend Hyper-V wholeheartedly but naturally it's of course up to you to decide if you want to test it. GEt started with this tutorial: Hyper-V virtualization - Setup and Use in Windows 10 - Windows 10 Forums.
     
  5. To which I might add that Macrium Reflect 6 has a free add-on that enables temporarily mounting a Macrium 6 image backup as a running Hyper-V virtual machine. I have found this an interesting way to troubleshoot the host system or try configurations before plunging in. There are still bugs but it is coming along.
