Microsoft Hyper-V Server Agentless Monitoring
Formerly known as Windows Server Virtualization, Hyper-V is Microsoft’s popular virtualization system for Windows Servers. It provides virtualization software for operating systems as well as hardware components such as, hard drives and network switches. Virtualization and Hyper-V offer numerous benefits, such as; hardware resources savings, space savings and reductions in energy costs, amongst many others. As a result it has become an incredibly popular hypervisor across the globe.
