    Hyper V 2012

    Hi,

    I noticed that you can install hyper-v as a role on server 2012 but there is also a standalone hypervisor. Is there any difference between the two feature wise?

    Thanks

    The standalone hyper-visor is free.

    The standalone is really an edition of Server Core, with only the Hyper-V role available. There's no GUI, so unless you're a wizard with command prompt you'll have to manage it with Server Manager and Hyper-V Manager from another machine running Window 8 / server 2012.

    Apart from that, they're identical feature wise.

    License-wise, the free HyperV 2012 product comes with 0 VM licenses. You could stick as many license-free Ubuntu VMs on it as you want, but for each Windows Server VM you create, you should have a license to cover it.
