This course introduces server virtualization features and capabilities within Windows Server 2012 that enable customers to take advantage of the cost savings of virtualization and make the optimum use of server hardware investment. These features include:

- Hyper-V Replica, providing replication of Hyper-V virtual machines (VMs) between two locations for business continuity and failure recovery.
- Live Migration and the changes in Windows Server 2012 to enable different migration scenarios.
- The ability to run larger VMs on physical hosts.

After completing this Windows Server Virtualization course—through a series of videos, virtual labs, and whitepapers—you will have a detailed understanding of how Windows Server 2012 goes beyond virtualization technology to provide a complete platform for building a private cloud.
