Windows Server 2012 Hyper-V provides key capabilities that can help you meet the needs of your organization at whichever level you are in the virtualization life cycle—Basic, Standardized, Orchestrated, and Automated.

Hyper-V multitenancy provides you with new security and multitenant isolation capabilities that can keep virtual machines isolated, even when they are stored on the same physical network or server. In addition, the Windows Server 2012 Hyper-V Extensible Virtual Switch supports third-party extensions that can provide enhanced networking and security capabilities. The result is an out-of-the-box solution to help you address the security complexities and requirements of any virtual environment.
