This week I’m playing with Windows Server 2012 R2 Hyper-V.
To start I thought I’d list the different type of Microsoft Virtualization
Microsoft’s basic definitions of the different types of Virtualization
You can use server virtualization to host a large number of virtual machines. Server Virtualization uses the Windows Server 2012 Hyper-V platform.
Desktop virtualization can refer to either client side virtualization, such as the Hyper-V client on a computer running Windows 8.1, or virtual desktop infrastructure, where the client computer operating systems run on a server virtualization host.
User state virtualization.
User state virtualization captures and centralizes application and Windows operating system settings for users. This enables users to sign in to any device while retaining their settings.
Presentation virtualization allows desktops and applications that are running on a Remote Desktop Services server to display on remote clients.
Network virtualization enables you to isolate networks used in server virtualization without requiring the implementation of virtual local area networks (VLANs).
You can use application virtualization to virtualize applications, which then enables applications to run in or be streamed to special containers on a host operating system.
