My next test is on linux guest operating system. . Based on my testing with Suse Linux Enterprise Server 11 SP3 running on Windows Server 2012 R2 (Preview Edition), the latest enhancement included with:-
Support for Online Backup
Compare to previous version of Hyper-V, Win 2012 R2 allowed you to perform backup by using any backup software without causing any downtime. Previous version of Hyper-V has a slight downtime when perform backup.
Support for Dynamic Memory
With Win 2012 R2, we can set dynamic memory:- startup memory, min memory ,max memory and weight on the supported linux operating system with updated integration services component. Below diagram showed the configuration
