Question concerning Hyper-V


in the exam ref book for 70-410 it mentions about a Type I VMM, i was wondering how do you check within windows server 2012 that you can confirm 100% on the OS.

It does mention in the book, once you install the role it will turn to a Type I and not a hybrid

Thanks all

    Both Hyper-V and VMware are Type I VMM's, but each have different ways of implementing it. Hyper-V uses a Microkernelized Hypervisor design while VMware uses a monolithic hypervisor design.

    Here is a good article I found on the subject: Hyper-V and VMware vSphere Architectures: Pros and Cons

    As far as "checking within Server 2012", it is not something you can really see, as it is all architecture and abstract layers. The main difference you see is the partition has an operating system and where the device drivers are delivered from.
