Initially, Hyper-V Server was sort of a mystery. Some kind of “bare metal hypervisor” that “is not Windows” sounded peculiar. Details were scarce. Some thought it would be like ESXi, a small-footprint design that can be embedded in a server via flash memory. As you know, it turned out to be nothing more than Windows Server Core.
Now that Hyper-V Server has been out for a while. I thought it would be amusing to go back and look at some of the “Get Virtual Now” rhetoric that was pouring out of Redmond before the release.
I hope you enjoy this Hyper-bol-V montage:
