i want to ask about windows vps virtualization for reseller. I want to automatic provisioning when the customer check out. Currently i am using hyper-v, setup manually and send login manually to customer too. My website using wordpress+WHMCS. i am looking for automation system to do this. Is it possible using hyper v integrate with whmcs?. I used hyper-v for more than 2 years, customer happy with it, and also i used host's official license of windows server for all VPS.

Please kindly share your suggestion.


I could get with RDC on the latest version of Windows Server was with Hyper-V and 4GB RAM. But, I'm using a resource-intensive piece of software that keeps track of software updates for client Windows machines.

Caveat: I only tried Windows VPS hosting, and never tried setting up my own. And I did get acceptable performance from OVH with KVM but it cost me nearly $40/month for the VPS. I'm paying less than $10/month for a Hyper-V VPS.


HyperVPS is a fast and powerful VPS server on the Windows operating system with Hyper-V virtualization, I personally used it. I was satisfied. For the knowledgeable, it is easy to use and copes with its task


Sysadmins and IT managers name such qualities as good stability of the Hyper-V hypervisor and Windows OS, support for clustering and "live migration" of VMs, scalability, the ability to assign network cards to virtual machines, which makes it possible to avoid bottlenecks that arise if only one physical network adapter is assigned to a virtual switch.

Live Migration makes it possible to move a virtual machine between the physical servers of the Hyper-V hypervisor, in particular automatically, without any user involvement.
They also mention the possibility of full—fledged centralized management of servers - a number of hosts and Hyper-V, while without additional purchase of licenses, as in the case of VMware vCenter.

It is quite simple to migrate a physical server to a virtual (P2V) one. To do this, a VHD image of the physical system is formed and assigned to a new virtual machine.
A comfortable mode called Enhanced Session Mode allows you to copy and paste inside a virtual machine.
Hyper-V is very easy to use – a great alternative to the VMware solution in the SMB segment.
It is also included in Windows 10, and this is almost a full-featured version.

The hypervisor itself costs nothing, it can be easily downloaded from the official Microsoft website, it is well suited for Microsoft OS virtualization, it is very easy to install and configure, and the vast majority of sysadmins are able to work with it. Nureg-V can be installed on any server that supports Windows.
More in the piggy bank of advantages: most Microsoft products are able to work in the virtual environment of the Hyper-V hypervisor.

The real negative qualities today include weak options for configuring work with storage. Importing and exporting, as well as creating templates, could be more friendly and reliable.
In Hyper-V, it is quite difficult to configure some things, for instance, High Availability, where cluster formation is necessary. In vSphere, for example, this is done more naturally and easier. And migration of a virtual machine to a Hyper-V hypervisor, unlike vMotion, is possible only between servers with processors of the same family.

In Hyper-V, there is also nothing like Distributed Resource Scheduler or Storage DRS, which in the VMware virtualization environment are used to balance all loads between host resources using vMotion, Storage vMotion.
But, SCVMM in Hyper-V hypervisor opens up possibilities that go beyond just server virtualization. For instance, you can create a private cloud with self-service options.

VMware has a vCloud Director solution, but this is a separate tool for separate funds. Microsoft SCVMM has a completely free program for System Center . In addition, SCVMM allows you to use hosts with Hyper-V, vSphere and Citrix hypervisor as virtualization platforms, while vCenter supports only the management of VMware hosts.
