Hyper-V Cloud

Hyper-V Cloud is an initiative by Microsoft to provide customers with virtualization and virtualization management software and make it easier for a business to virtualize existing server hardware assets and move them to a private or public cloud. 

The initiative has three major components:

Hyper-V Cloud Deployment Guides: Includes modules covering architecture, deployment, operations, project validation and project planning.

Hyper-V Cloud Fast Track: Includes pre-validated configurations from Microsoft and specific original equipment manufacturer (OEM) partners.

Hyper-V Cloud Service Providers: Lists partners who Microsoft considers to be qualified to host a private cloud infrastructure.
