Hyper-V is a native x64 PC-compatible virtualization application released by Microsoft. Hyper-V succeeded Virtual PC. It was first included with Windows Server 2008, and has been freely available since Windows 8 and Windows Server 2012, where it can be installed as an optional component on the Pro version and higher versions. Currently no version of Windows can enable Hyper-V on the home version.
