Commonly asked questions about Microsoft Hyper-V backup and recovery

Hyper-V is used for virtualizing hardware to run multiple operating systems as virtual machines on Windows. It allows you to create virtual hard drives, virtual switches, and a number of other virtual devices, all of which can be added to virtual machines.

One of the main differences is scalability. VMware exceeds that of Hyper-V because VMware supports multiple host OS versions, while Hyper-V places more emphasis on the support of Microsoft OS.

Cohesity DataProtect is tightly integrated with Microsoft Hyper-V 2012 R2, 2016, and 2019 at multiple levels to provide as simple, efficient, reliable, and fast data protection and recovery as possible.
