Windows 8 Client Hyper-V


Client Hyper-V the computer virtualization technology is built into the non-server version of Windows, Windows 8.  Client Hyper-V is the same computer virtualization technology that available in Windows Server.  It provides the same virtualization capabilities as Hyper-V in Windows Server 2012.
