What Is Hyper-V & How Do You Use It?

Hyper-V is virtualization software that, well, virtualizes software. It can not only virtualize operating systems but also entire hardware components, such as hard drives and network switches. Unlike Fusion and Virtualbox, Hyper-V is not limited to the user’s device. You can use it for server virtualization, too.

Hyper-V is available in three versions.

Hyper-V for Windows Servers

Hyper V Server

Hyper-V on Windows 10

Hyper-V for Windows Servers is an add-on to the Windows Server OS. Hyper-V Servers, on the other hand, is a standalone solution that can be used to manage virtual and dedicated server instances, just like Hyper-V for Windows Servers.

Hyper-V on Windows 10 is the version that runs on your laptop and the subject of this article.

To enable Hyper-V on your Windows device, you need a 64-bit OS. It doesn’t have to be Windows 10, though. Windows 8.1 works too.

Before you get started, you should test your laptop’s hardware performance to make sure your virtual machine will run smoothly. Even if Microsoft says 4GB of RAM is sufficient, you should ideally have 8GB to 16GB. There is a difference between “the software works” and “the software is usable.”

You should also make sure your hard drive has enough space for an additional OS.
