Deploy Hyper-V server for Nested Virtualization on Azure. Alternative to Vmware. Host multiple Windows OS types, Linux OS types and container nested virtual machines.
Virtualization technologies, or platforms, are more commonly referred to as hypervisors. There are several different hypervisors on the market Hyper V is Microsoft's version. Some others that are well-known are VMWare ESXi and VSphere, XenServer (Citrix), KVM Open Source Hypervisor, RHEV (Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization), VirtualBox and other types of Virtual Server.
With Hyper-V running on Azure, you are now able to replicate Hyper-V virtual machines you have on prem to HyperV running on Azure. This provides full disaster recovery and a backup solution to your physical sites.
Create isolated environments using Hyper V, great for Dev/Test environments. You also have the option to create a NAT and give network access to your current Azure VMs to your Hyper-V Nested VMs.
Before deploying, make sure the VM size you choose, is one of the supported hardware types.
