Download Microsoft Hyper-V Server 2012 for Free!


Do you want to consolidate Servers? In cases where no new Windows Server licenses are required or where the servers being consolidated are running an alternative OS, you may want to consider using Microsoft Hyper-V Server for free!

Hyper-V Server is a dedicated stand-alone product that contains the hypervisor, Windows Server driver model, virtualization capabilities, and supporting components such as failover clustering, but does not contain the robust set of features and roles as the Windows Server operating system. As a result Hyper-V Server produces a small footprint and requires minimal overhead.

One of the most common uses for Hyper-V Server is in Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) environments. VDI allows a Windows client operating system to run on server-based virtual machines in the datacenter, which the user can access from a PC, thin client, or other client device. A full client environment is virtualized within a server-based hypervisor, centralizing users’ desktops.

By deploying VDI with Microsoft Hyper-V Server 2012, users will have seamless access to a rich, full fidelity Windows environment running in the data center, from any device. Hyper-V Server also gives IT professionals a cost effective VDI solution with simplified administration, flexible storage options, and dynamic allocation of resources.

    Does stand-alone Hyper-V Server 2012 support Hyper-V Replica / Replication of VMs with Windows Server 2012 and/or R2 running Hyper-V on it?

  10. Anders says:

    Is this still free? The only option on the site the article links to is the regular Windows Server 2012 R2.

    ^^^^ = yes it is still free

  13. Scott says:

    It’s my understanding that you need to install Windows 2012 R2 datacenter with Hyper-v to run Unlimited VM’s on that host. What does the free version give you, is this for a small setup?
