Microsoft Hyper-V Server 2016
Microsoft Hyper-V Server 2016 is a stand-alone product that contains only the Windows hypervisor, a Windows Server driver model, and virtualization components. It provides a simple and reliable virtualization solution to help you improve your server utilization and reduce costs.
The Windows hypervisor technology in Microsoft Hyper-V Server 2016 is the same as what's in the Hyper-V role on Windows Server 2016. So, much of the content available for the Hyper-V role on Windows Server 2016 also applies to Microsoft Hyper-V Server 2016.
