Which OS is better for Hyper-V?

Hi,

As per my knowledge, for using Hyper-V, either we can use Windows 10 or Windows Server 2016/ 2019.

Please let us know, which OS is better for using Hyper-V only?

And how both Hyper-V are different from each other?

If available, please share links that can compare both Hyper-V.

With Regards
NndnG

Thank you for replying and sharing the link.

As per the link, Hyper-V features only available on Windows Server:

  • Live migration of virtual machines from one host to another

  • Hyper-V Replica

  • Virtual Fiber Channel

  • SR-IOV networking

  • Shared .VHDX

Please let me know, any above features or any features of Windows Server Hyper-V are dependent on AD or DNS?

Moreover, without installing and configuring AD and DNS, does Windows Server Hyper-V work fine in terms of all functionality?

Hi,

Hyper V live migration and Hyper V replication are depend on the AD domain.

SR-IOV network also depends on Network card features. And SR-IOV is related to the Live migration feature.

Generally, VMs Interactive operation with other Hyper V servers requires AD domain, such as live migration, replication.

If the VM only stays on the current Hyper V host, Windows 10 system is enough for VM management.

If there are any other concerns or questions, please feel free to let me know.

Thanks for your time!
Best Regards,
Anne
