How to install Ubuntu 21.04 on Hyper-V

Virtualizing in Hyper-V is one of the best options we have to prevent our physical equipment from suffering errors in case we want to try a new operating system, whether it is just launched or in beta. This is because it can still be an unstable system. In addition, with virtualization we can check in real time the behavior and compatibility of the applications, either with a new system or in an architecture to be implemented..

 

Hyper-V is developed by Microsoft and is integrated into the features of Windows 10, to know how to enable Hyper-V you can go to the following link:

 

 

characteristics
Some of its main characteristics are:

  • Efficient use of memory
  • It allows adding or removing “hot” storage without having to turn off the virtual machine
  • Run multiple machines on a single computer
  • Storage Spaces Direct enhancements
  • Option to use the Windows Admin Center
  • Advances in containers
  • Encrypted networks
