I recently recorded a free podcast that introduces listeners to Hyper-V: What it is, why it matters, and how it works (without getting into a lot of technical details).  It’s titled (appropriately enough), What is Microsoft Hyper-V?.  Here’s the abstract:

In this podcast, virtualization expert Anil Desai talks with WhatIs.com’s Alex Howard about Microsoft’s Hyper-V, a new virtualization platform from the Redmond-based software giant. Listen to this podcast and learn:

  • Exactly what Hyper-V is, how it works, how it fits in with other virtualization products and how you can use it.
  • The advantages and limitations of Hyper-V, its system requirements and an overview of the installation process.
  • How to create virtual machines (VMs) and use Hyper-V’s integrated features to address VM sprawl.

The podcast was sponsored by Dell and is available for free (registration is required).
