a) Limited to 32x guest operating system
b) Using only 25% of 1 processor.
c) Limited to 3.6GB of RAM per guest.

As time past by, Microsoft has finally come out with built in virtualization solution on Windows Server 2008 64 platform. Hyper V is a new a hypervisor based virtualization which do not run on top of the operating system. The child partition is directly access to the resources. The advantages of Hyper V is
