Windows Server 2012, Part 6: Hyper V and Windows Firewall

with expert JC Mackin

Hyper V is a hardware virtualization platform built in to Windows Server 2012. Hyper V lets you run multiple operating systems at the same time on one physical computer. Each of these operating systems runs in its own virtual computer called a virtual machine that operates independently and has its own assigned processor, disk, memory, and network resources. Two key aspects of securing servers in your organization are to control the local firewall settings on those individual servers and provide security to the traffic that move to and from those servers with authentication and data protection. Windows Server 2012 includes a tool called Windows Firewall with Advanced Security that lets you configure both of these security features.
