  • A

    Accelerated Hub Architecture (AHA) (or Intel Hub Architecture)

    Accelerated Hub Architecture (AHA) (also called Intel Hub Architecture) is an Intel 800-series chipset design that uses a dedicated bus to transfer data between the two main processor chips instead of using the Peripheral Component Interconnect (PCI) bus, which was used in previous chipset architectures.

  • C

    CSV (Cluster Shared Volumes)

    CSV (Cluster Shared Volumes) is a feature in Windows Server in which shared disks are concurrently accessible to all nodes within a failover cluster.

  • H

    Hyper-V live migration

    Hyper-V live migration is a Hyper-V feature that lets admins move running virtual machines from one failover cluster node to a cluster in the same node.

  • M

    Microsoft Client Hyper-V

    Microsoft Client Hyper-V is a type-1 hypervisor for the Windows 8.x and Windows 10 operating systems (OSes).

  • Microsoft Hyper-V 3.0

  • Microsoft Hyper-V Manager

    Microsoft Hyper-V Manager is a tool that allows administrators to create, change and delete virtual machines (VMs).

  • Microsoft Hyper-V Shielded VM

    A Microsoft Hyper-V Shielded VM is a security feature of Windows Server 2016 that protects a Hyper-V second-generation virtual machine (VM) from access or tampering by using a combination of Secure Boot, BitLocker encryption, virtual Trusted Platform Module (TPM) and the Host Guardian Service.

  • Microsoft Hyper-V version 1.0

  • Microsoft Virtual Machine Bus (VMBus)

    Microsoft Virtual Machine Bus (VMBus) is a mechanism within the Hyper-V architecture that enables logical communication in partitions.

  • Microsoft Virtual Machine Converter (MVMC)

    Microsoft Virtual Machine Converter (MVMC) is a supported stand-alone option that can convert VMware virtual machines and virtual disks into Hyper-V VMs and virtual hard disks.

  • Windows containers

    Windows containers are abstracted, isolated and portable operating environments supported by the Microsoft Windows Server 2016 operating system and managed with tools such as Docker and PowerShell.

  • R

    registry virtualization (Windows Vista)

    Registry virtualization (RV) is a compatibility application that supports write operations in a registry.

  • S

    Second Level Address Translation (SLAT)

    Second Level Address Translation (SLAT) is a technology designed to reduce the overhead in a hypervisor CPU while easing the management of a hypervisor's memory and is often found with Hyper-V.

  • V

    VHDX (Hyper-V virtual hard disk)
