Hyper-V lets you run multiple operating systems as virtual machines on Windows. Microsoft Hyper-V, codenamed Viridian and formerly known as Windows Server Virtualization, is a native hypervisor; it can create virtual machines on x86-64 systems running Windows.

You can enable Hyper-V to create virtual machines on Windows 10.  Hyper-V can be enabled in many ways including using the Windows 10 control panel, PowerShell (my favorite) or using the Deployment Imaging Servicing and Management tool (DISM).   

Hyper-V specifically provides hardware virtualization. That means each virtual machine runs on virtual hardware. Hyper-V lets you create virtual hard drives, virtual switches, and a number of other virtual devices all of which can be added to virtual machines.

Reasons to use virtualization

Virtualization allows you to:

  • Run software that requires an older versions of Windows or non-Windows operating systems.
  • Experiment with other operating systems. Hyper-V makes it very easy to create and remove different operating systems.
  • Test software on multiple operating systems using multiple virtual machines. With Hyper-V, you can run them all on a single desktop or laptop computer. These virtual machines can be exported and then imported into any other Hyper-V system, including Azure.
