Description

Hyper-V can seem a deceptively simplistic solution for hosting virtual machines, but hiding under the shallows of its surface is some complex machinery alongside powerful automation. Getting started these days requires diving beneath Hyper-V Manager's graphical interface alone. This course, Implementing Windows Server 2016 Hyper-V, kick-starts your Hyper-V experience by going beyond the basics. First, you'll begin with the installation of Hyper-V, along with the gotchas to be prepared for. Next, you'll explore the right ways to configure storage and networking. Finally, you'll learn about the wide range of virtual machine settings that ensure your VMs get the resources their workloads require. By the end of this course, you will have the foundational knowledge to be able to manage a Hyper-V environment.

Hey, this is Greg Shields, and you've found another of my courses in this learning path on Windows Server 2016, this time on the sometimes complex and definitely layered world of Hyper-V. I am Author Evangelist and a full-time author here at Pluralsight, and I've been building and delivering courses on Hyper-V since its inception.

Hyper-V in Windows Server 2016 is Microsoft's fifth major release for this virtualization platform. It arrives with new features and functionality that further strengthen the argument for its use as a highly-available and production-worthy platform for your neediest virtual machines. This one's gonna' be good.

In this course, we'll explore Hyper-V's most-compelling features, those you need to know and are likely to implement in your own production environment. We'll begin with the installation of Hyper-V, along with the gotchas to be prepared for. We'll explore the right ways to configure storage and networking, and walk through the wide range of virtual machine settings that ensure your VMs get the resources their workloads require.

If you've just been tasked with deploying and managing Hyper-V on Windows Server 2016, this course is your first stop in brushing up on those skills for success.

And then from here, you'll be ready to continue on the learning path as you explore Windows containers, high-availability, and the maintenence and monitoring of your Windows Server environment. Let's get started.
